Importing a Wall (Solid DirectShape)

1. (Rhino) Create complex surface representing face of wall

Define a surface representing the face of a wall. These objects can have complex curvature and trims.

2. (Rhino) Assign the surface to a Walls type

Assign the surface to a Walls category. You can use any “Type” classification – DirectShapes will only inherit the “Wall” category.

Save the Rhino file.

3. (Revit) Launch Rhino Conveyor and select saved Rhino 3DM file

In the Rhino Conveyor panel, select the Rhino 3DM containing the wall object(s). Verify the listing of elements and select as needed.

4. (Revit) Import Load Selected Wall Elements

Load the selected walls into the Revit document. Verify that the wall has been created with the defined type.
