This script was created to fulfill a need to quickly add around 2500 elements to the model, elements that are mostly round (either circle or arc objects in AutoCAD drawings). Hence, since my other script was unable to work with round objects, I created a variation of the “AutoCAD drawing to equipment” script.
The logic for the most part remains the same. We must insert AutoCAD into our model, select the specific AutoCAD, type the layer name in which our round objects are located and choose the face because all the families we needed to insert were face-based.
Now, regarding the selection of the face, the script recognizes two different scenarios: one where the MEP user is working in the same model as Architecture and another where the MEP user is in a separate model and Architecture is a Revit link. In the video, I demonstrated both procedures, but if you have any questions, please feel free to let me know.
Please make sure that before you start using this script you back up the existing project model.
Also, if you want to download this (and all other scripts) with my sample files please visit the Shop page.
The script uses the following Dynamo package: BimorphNodes | v.4.2.4 spring nodes | v.110.0.2
