    Show Centerline of Wall/Core

    We have a request from our layout group to show the centerline of all wall cores for layout purposes. I have never found a way to do this, but am hopeful someone has. Any help is appreciated.

    Only way I can think of is that it would be easy to draw lines in correct place for all your walls using Dynamo

    I wouldnt do it on an actual dontract doc, as they are just going to look goofy, with extra lines on every wall.

    Getting a Detail Line placed down the center of the core wouldnt be a massive undertaking, if you didnt mind them not all being cleaned up at the ends and corners. If they cred about the corners, i imagine its a whole other animal.

    Well since they actually use CAD for layout it could be a script that places a Centerline Detail line at the center of core of all walls, it won't matter if its clean at the corners, just need to add it, then export the DWG. I'm not really excited about doing this, ie when something changes verifying the re-export will be a pain. its really a feature request. I was thinking the analytical line might be able to be revealed. But not all walls will be structural so they wouldn't show up.

    Super quickly thrown together but this might get you started.

    Made in Dynamo 2.02 + R18, just need clockwork and geniusloci packages
    Have tested in attached .rvt with different wall types / number of layers etc.

    It should be self-explanatory what's going on, but basically...

    Find the wall layers
    Look for Structure layers
    Draw curve in dynamo
    Draw detail line in Revit view

    If you have multiple structure layers it will draw a line for each one, but obviously this is just a start and so much more could be done with this like multiple views etc...

    Thanks Elton!. I've passed this on to the team to see if they can make it work.

    Scott if the team is using Dynamo possibly have those lines go directly into a .dwg then you don't even have to export...
