Updating objects GH>Revit

Hey guys,

I’m currently testing streaming some basic objects from GH to Revit to get familiar with the new classes. One very cool thing of Speckle 2 is that updating is now done very well, good job :ok_hand:! However, I came across two minor issues when changing my GH model and trying to receive the updated stream in Revit.

  1. RevitBrace objects
    I have tested several structural related objects (columns, beams, floors, walls) which all seem to update properly, but I can’t get the Brace objects to update properly in Revit. When receiving the updated stream in Revit, the old brace object will remain in the model. Causing sometimes a conversion error when the brace itself is not updated and two identical instances are present in the model. When looking at the object itself in the stream the applicationId’s are exactly the same. Any thoughts on this?


  2. RevitColumn Vertical rotation
    The RevitColumn objects update in Revit like expected, except for the case when only the rotation input has been changed. In this case nothing will happen and the columns will remain the same as the previous commit. Only when I remove the columns and reload the latest commit the rotations are well received. What are your thoughts?

The images above are from earlier versions of the connectors, but I have just updated everything to the latest version which unfortunately didn’t solve these issues :cry:. I’m using Revit 2021 here btw.

Thanks in advance!

I can confirm they’ve been now fixed and will be included in the next release (due in 1-2 weeks).
