Wall openings for MEP installations

This script will automatically create round and rectangular wall openings for Cable trays, Ducts and Pipes. The script contains so many features but there is also room for improvement.

Because the most common relation between architectural and MEP model is over the Revit link the script is able to retrieve elements from the Revit link model.

The script is able to calculate dimension of the each element, insulation (if any) and the user-required offset. The total dimension will actually be the wall opening.

The user can specify the dimension below which the script will ignore the creation of the wall openings (this is especially useful for small pipe diameter).

Please make sure that before you start using this script that you back up your 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 packages:

archilab v.2021.25.21
Data-Shapes v.2021.2.92
Clockwork v.2.3.0
BimorphNodes v.3.0.3

  1. Thanks for show this great script.
    We are electrical engineers and need this script with inverted Model linking.
    The main model (host) is the electrical model with cable trays. The linked model is the architectural model.
    All Models on Autodesk Construction Cloud.
    Is this possible?
    In Open BIM projects we generate Opening as families and pass it to the architects as IFC or DWG.
    Often they do not work with Revit. We would buy the script.
