Revit Dynamo Parking Tools

Revit Dynamo Parking Tools

Working on some tools to assist the design teams in managing parking spaces.  The attached graph contains two tools.  The first tool renumbers parking spaces based on a model based spline drawn through the spaces.  Refer to the image below for more info.

Renumber Parking

The instructions to renumber the parking spaces are shown in the blue area in the image and listed below this paragraph.   Use the control toggle boolean node to run one graph at a time by setting its value to true and the other node to false.

To renumber existing parking tags based on spline

1.) Draw a model line using the spline tool. If your sketch contains multiple sharp curves, you may need to increase the “Integer Slider” amount to ensure the routine gets all the parking stalls. 400 is a good starting number.
2.) Start in lowest number parking spot, continue spline through parking spots in order ending the spline in the spot you wish to have the highest number.
3.) Use Select Spline (Model line) “Change” button to select the model spline in your project.
4.) Enter desired starting number for in Starting number node.
5.) Enter desired increment amount

Click Run when Ready

The second tool addresses parking spaces on ramps.  It requires a custom parameter named SCHEDULE LEVEL.  Use the second tool to write data to the parameter.  You can use this to filter your parking schedule.

The instructions to update the parameter are shown in the blue area in the image below and are listed below this paragraph.

To Assign Schedule Level

To differentiate between level based parking and ramp associated parking, perform the following steps:

1.) Click Select model elements and window the parking elements that are to be associated with the ramp.

2.) Click True to run this operation or False to run a different operation.

The image below shows the entire graph.

Friendly Auto Gallery Cumming GA – Five Star Review

If your in the North Atlanta area and you’re looking for a car, I highly recommend Friendly Auto Gallery. It’s always nice to find an exceptional business, especially close to home. The staff at Friendly Auto Gallery made the process quick and pressure free. I don’t normally make recommendations for businesses on my blog, but I’ll make an exception for Friendly Auto Gallery. They were outstanding!
