Verify Dimension Accuracy in #Revit with #DynamoBIM

It’s not very often that I stumble upon things in Dynamo that make me nervous, but there are times.

Recently, a discussion popped up on the Dynamo forums regarding overriding dimensions. I think most people’s feelings surrounding this kind of workflow are generally, NO!!

 

Thankfully, not only can you wreak havoc with the Revit API, you can fix it too!

Enter the Dimension.IsOverridden node!

With this workflow you can override the color of screwed with dimensions pretty easily.

Have fun, and be safe!
