Urban Design land use plans??

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I understand that there is better software for this use - but I'm wondering if anyone uses Revit for this - see attached image as example

I'm particularly interested in being able to automatically generate:

 

coloured fills based on area range

lot area calculations

lot dimensions

lot numbers

 

Thanks

Paul

Most of the functions you want are out there in lisp dont know about Revit, nearly all will work with plines, GP has a nice area auto placement, the lines again auto labelling, the frontage is a bit of a problem as unless you draw the lot with a rule that 1st segment is the frontage. Bpoly can be used to create plines. I know I have done some posts that may be useful.

 

Interesting you have rear access something that is a bit rare these days usually a rear segment would be a linear park or a drainage easement.

We're currently using Autocad and have a tool to do this. It's expensive so just looking at other options. Do you have some lisps?

This was just an example image I grabbed off the web..think from the US

Interesting to see. Its typical infra/site work has a great deal to do of GIS abilities. Do you work with shared coordinate and other data sources?

 

Don't think the same way about answering you're questions like it is some kind of AutoCAD product.

Revit is more like a database.I think Dynamo is the pool for you to dive into for scripting and manipulating data..

Absolutely - mainly survey and civil files

Revit can definitely do this, but it would take some effort. Although doable, Revit may not be the best program for this task.

Does there need to be any custom programming done or can it do it out of the box?

It can absolutely be done out of the box without programming. The only reason you'd need programming is for your request in doing it "automatically". Which, technically speaking, still would require a decent amount of manual setup so not sure how much "automating" you would be able to accomplish.

Area+pline+cadtutor lots of answers

 

I've got a lisp to do the areas and the dimensions. But still looking for one to do the hatching

Can you give me a couple of tips please:

 

1. I know how to get the dimensions but need to do them one at a time

2. Area - not sure how

3. Hatch - not sure how

 

Thanks

Paul

I'm swapping order because it matters... answering 1, 2 and 3 in order of 1, 3 and 2. :)

 

1. No need. After you place your 1,2 pick on the dimension string, just click in an empty white space to finalize the dimension. The tool stays active so you can continue on.

3. AutoCAD's Hatch tool = Revit's Region tool. You can find the Region tool on the Annotate Tab > Detail Panel.

2. After you place a Region, select it and the Area populates in the Properties Panel.

The code is quite simple (command "-hatch" pt "" "ansi32") the bit you must pass is the object either last or previous or object returned as part of the Area code and a pt inside the pline in this case probably the insertion pt of the text.

 

Pixel8r you may have been better starting 2 posts one for the Autocad answer and one for the REVIT answer as the posts are leap frogging due to world time.

.. one for the REVIT answer ...

 

As far as I know Dynamo / phyton would most likely be of interest for customizing these.
