Axonometric From Room with Dynamo

When creating a room data sheet, say for a healthcare project, it is often necessary to create a 3D axonometric view per room to accompany the detailed floor plan, internal elevations and schedules. To create these views within Revit involves multiple steps:

  1. Duplicate an existing 3D view.
  2. Rename the view.
  3. Activate the section box and modify its extent to extend just beyond the room’s bounding box.
  4. Set the view’s orientation using the view cube.
  5. Lock the orientation
  6. Apply a view template to control the graphic appearance.

The problem

Creating a large number of 3D axonometric views can be time-consuming and error-prone. For example, Revit does not allow two views to have the same view name. Therefore, each view created must have a unique name, which must be entered manually. Additionally, sometimes multiple rooms must be grouped within a single 3D view. For example, a hotel or hospital room usually consists of two ‘sub-rooms’ – the bed…
