Dynamo Site

Topography By Text

Site cad




That is the problem;

We have a cad file containing topography heights but no points. Texts locations are at the correct heights too.





Revit topography tool doesn’t working because of lack of  the convenient geometry. But we have “Dynamo” :D.

First step; I imported Dwg to Revit and expolde it. After the explode all the text notes become visible at site level.

Second; In dynamo, i use only 3 nodes, thanks to Clockwork package 🙂 again. Select all text element and query the locations. As a suprise all the text still have the correct locations, including “Z”. You can not see them at 3d view but still the family contains the Z value.





That is the final topography. 🙂
