You might be aware that you can use CPython script inside pyRevit using
#! python3 at the beginning of your script file. The library which allow this is pythonnet. I encountered some issues:
pathlibmodule was not working because it was using ironpython version from
pyrevitlib. Why ? python path. CPython
site-packagespath came after ironpython
sites-packagespath. Workaround: put
<extension_path>\libfolder but it might be an issue if another script uses ironpython version. See issue #1287.
- I have not found yet how to make a GUI inside Revit inside a CPython script.
tkinteris not packaged with embedded python interpreter.
wpfdoes not work the same way with pythonnet. Windows Forms might work.
What the script does at the moment is creating a
.rvt file for each producer. It creates materials including main thermal properties. It also create hatches and apply colors based on a
.json template produced with
ExportMaterialsGraphics script which serialize all this parameters. Doing so I discovered how complex hatch are stored with in a list of
FillGrid. Whatever the shape of your hatch, it is stored as a list of segments.
Source code is available here. I made a short video (in French) to explain how to use it currently.
