Here is an example of using Dynamo to do two things that you cannot do natively in Revit®: convert one data type to another (in this example, converting integers to strings) and concatenating multiple strings into one string. The inspiration for creating this Dynamo file was this thread in the Autodesk Revit Architecture Discussion Group. The request was a wish for …

I had the good fortune to be able to attend Autodesk University this year, and without initially intending to do so, ended up with the majority of my classes centered on Dynamo. Dynamo is an open-source add-in that works with Revit (and Vasari) and provides a graphical means of creating custom programming for Revit. The architect side of me appreciates the …

While I am certain that the error message in the title above will be issued for any number of reasons, I came across this when some users were trying to run a custom AutoLISP® routine that draws an area to be enlarged "box". Until yesterday, I was unable to reproduce the issue on my own computer, making it hard to figure …

First post in series [AecLineworkExtend].Previous post in series [AECLineworkDivide].The AecLineworkSubtract command is available on the Home ribbon tab, on the Modify panel flyout, by selecting the Subtract tool from the Merge/Subtract flyout. If the Subtract tool is not the displayed tool on the Merge/Subtract flyout, select the right side of the split button (down arrow icon) to deploy the flyout and …

Several people in the Autodesk AutoCAD® Architecture General Discussion Group have experienced problems when trying to run AutoLISP routines in which an error condition is encountered. Instead of the usual, often helpful, error message at the Command: line, this error shows up, instead: Cannot invoke (command) from *error* without prior call to (*push-error-using-command*). This appears to happen even when the first …

First post in series [AecLineworkExtend].Previous post in series [AecLineworkTrim].I decided not to wait six years between posts on the AEC Modify tools this time. Today's featured command is the AecLineworkDivide command. This command can be accessed on the Home ribbon tab, on the Modify panel flyout or from the right-click context menu (no command active), by choosing AEC Modify Tools > …

From time to time, questions are raised as to what new features have been added between Release X and Release Y. I try write about the new features at the time of each release (or, at the least, the new features that interest me), but have never collected links to all of those in one place. To make it easier for …

Some time ago, I purchased Renaissance Revit® - Creating Classical Architecture with Modern Software, by Paul F. Aubin. Since then, I have been struggling with finding time to work my way through the tutorials in the book. Having finally made it into Chapter 6 (of 14), and completed the Tuscan column, it occurred to me that I should write something about …

I came across this somewhat older article in the Autodesk® Knowledge Network recently: Creating a New Tool Palettes Set. Written for AutoCAD® Architecture 2011, I made a mental note to look into this when I had some time, because creating additional Tool Palettes File Locations is something that I do on occasion (more often than most users, no doubt). See the …

There is an issue in AutoCAD® with Object Snap Tracking when the Command: line is undocked and either Dynamic Input is disabled, or, if enabled, the Pointer Input component of dynamic input is disabled. Under these circumstances, when you acquire a point, and move the cursor to a position where you have a tracking line active, when you start to type …

Long-time users of Autodesk® AutoCAD® and Autodesk® AutoCAD® Architecture are likely familiar with the HIGHLIGHT system variable, which enables/disables highlighting of selected objects. Back before grips, enabling it was the only way to visually keep track of what objects were currently selected. The 2015 release adds a new effect to both selection highlighting and selection preview - the "glowing line" - …

Sometimes things "go south" and the program, or some part of it, stops working the way it is supposed to work. Trying to figure out the precise thing that is wrong can often take more time than it is worth, particularly if the issue is not one that has presented itself to you before. The usual suggestion is to run a …
