Mullion Organization in #Revit with #DynamoBIM

 

Recently we had someone ask how to randomize vertical mullion placement on a curtain wall. Specifically for a metal panel wall.

Enter #DynamoBIM. Rather than place them we decided to delete a random amount of the vertical mullions. Fortunately and unfortunately Dynamo organizes items by their ElementID. This caused the creation of the following node.

imageIt will sort a host’s (curtain wall’s) mullions by the direction they are going. This then enables us to delete a random amount of vertical mullions or whatever we need!

 

The video below shows this process.
