Create Revit Grids from an Imported/Linked AutoCAD File Using DynamoBIM

Have you ever wanted to create Grids from a linked DWG in Revit? Isolate the grids in your dwg and link it into Revit. Then add the nodes below shown in the image. It only requires 5 nodes... Yes Really...
New to Dynamo? Download it for free at www.dynamobim.org and get started.

Want to learn more about working with dwg?
Attend my lecture on "Dynamo for Contractors" At Autodesk University 2015

FYI for anyone elses reference for radial grids you'll need to add a Curve.PointAtParameter code block to get the grid line mid point, 0.5 parameter input, then use the Arc.bythreepoints code block then Grid.ByArc.

Thanks for the post Marcello. I was able to use the same workflow to create sloped structural columns.

Hi Marcello, thank for the tutorial. Can you please show also how to rename the grids using dynamo? Really need it.

Thank you and more power.
