I have been busy lately converting a complex timber slatted ceiling from grasshopper into native Revit geometry. I have tried all the popular plugins that translate geometry between grasshopper and Revit. At the moment, I am using Grevit and lyrebird, to place point-based adaptive components with a conversion scale factor of mm to ft – 0.0032808399. I have also used the hummingbird plugin to place rotated families, however only half of them come into Revit properly rotated.

In all, I a very excited about using a familiar platform to drive Revit native geometry.
