My last insulation family was not bad but not very good either. This time, I create a Dynamo graph for the same job.  And it’s more convenient and better than basic insulation tool in some ways.

Is this what you imagine? Se below if yes.

I created two different Dynamo graph.

1st.  Using Arcs and Straight Lines.

 It’s created by my traditional method, Math.

This is just a part of the graph.


It works quite well, but I found little faulty on this.

Looks fine.. But.

It can’t generate an insulation which has small Width Ratio(wide insulation interval) like below picture. 

Basic Revit Insulation. Width Ratio=1

2nd. Using NurbsCurve.
As you can see above picture, curve of Insulation in Revit is not arc&line but NurbsCurve which can be drawn with Spline tool. So I…
