This learning series gives Conveyor V4 users guidance on setting up workflows for modular design elements using a Multifamily building dataset, utilizing:
- Revit groups
- Rhino Unit Layouts structured as Nested Blocks
- Blocked, Imported FF&E Elements from SketchUp Models, sourced from Trimble Warehouse
This workflow is compatible with Conveyor V4 or later.*
Questions regarding Conveyor or this learning series can be sent to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The example dataset contains Revit 2024, Rhino 7, Rhino material, and Grasshopper files.
*Please note that Rhino.Inside.Revit versions 1.14 or after appear to be compatible with Revit 2024. Refer to the Rhino.Inside.Revit website for additional information.
