Speckle can't load certain floors,walls and columns from Revit to Revit


So i have ran a couple of tests with different kind of floors,walls,beams and columns. I have noticed that speckle can not properly copy some of them. The things i have tested are listed below with the results. In the end of this post the link to the stream will be provided.

Floors (problems)



  • Flat no cuts (working)

  • Flat with cut (working)

  • Tilted using “slope” function (can’t be loaded)

  • Tilted using “Modify sub elements” function (can’t be loaded)

Walls (problems)



From left to right

  • Normal wall (working)
  • Profiled wall using “edit profile” (replaced with normal wall)
  • Profiled wall “wall opening” function (replaced with normal wall)

Columns (problems)



  • vertical/normal column (working)
  • Diagonal column in x axis (replaced with normal column)
  • Diagonal column in x and y axis (replaced with normal column)

Happy holidays Speckle friends!

If you could share the Revit source file also? It can be via DM. This can be used as the end-to-end test case.

I’m not sure who may look at this soon, but I hope this won’t trouble your holidays too much, @Rowan.

Thanks Jonathon for your reply. I have send you the source file as a direct message.

Hey @Rowan,

Thanks so much for sharing the Revit file with us and helping us to improve Speckle. I was able to reproduce all of the described issues and made several fixes that you can see in the pull request here if you are interested. The only thing I didn’t fix is recreating one of the floor elements with it’s original subelements. That one is going to take a bit more work to implement.

I wasn’t able to get this fix done in time to make it in the 2.11 release today, so I have it targeted for 2.12. If you urgently need this functionality then I can ping you to help me test it a bit, and then I can make a hotfix for 2.11 instead.

Hey @connor ,

Nice to hear from you again :smiley: . I am happy to see these problems have been resolved so quickly. Hopefully you will be able to find a fix for the floor element mentioned. I will patiently wait for update 2.12.

Again thanks for reaching out and have a wonderful day! @jonathon Thanks to you as well.

hi Rowan and Connor,

I’ve been experiencing the same issues mentionned by Rowan. I’ve downloaded the 2.12 version, but the results are the same. A vertical surface with a profile in Rhino will become a normal wall in REVIT with no profile. For a slope surface witch i would like to convert has a slope floor or a slope roof, same has Rowan showcased.

I was wondering if you have any updates

Thanks for the efforts

Can you share a sample file so we can understand the context better?
