Revit To TestFit Kit of Parts (KOP)

Take typical apartment units in Revit and bring it into TestFit as a Kit-Of-Parts

Setup: Make sure you have gone through the steps to setup Dynamo Player and the correct Dynamo Packages.

Scripts

If you'd like to download the scripts, you can do so here. If you'd like to watch a video, you can do so here.

Imperial/Metric Units

The script will automatically recognize whether your Revit project is in imperial or metric (the Length units must be in feet or meters in order for TestFit to recognize it). If it is imperial, your KOP will be placed in  C:\ProgramData\testfit\units\ and if metric it will be placed in C:\ProgramData\testfit\units\metric

How to get your standard Revit apartment units into a TestFit KOP

  1. Run the script with Dynamo Player
  2. Input the unit name and the type of unit
  3. Select the walls that enclose the unit (Don't include the entry or balcony walls)
  4. Select the balcony walls
  5. Select the entry walls
  6. If you are creating a KOP from scratch, don't choose a save location. It will save the KOP in C:\ProgramData\testfit\units as Revit.KOP. If you want to add a unit to an existing KOP, go to C:\ProgramData\testfit\units and select the KOP you would like to add to.
  7. Input the Category, Bed Count, Bath Count, and Color.
  8. Click Export Revit To TestFit KOP. This will save that file as a KOP (named RevitKOP) in your TestFit unit database. You will have to restart TestFit to show the new KOP. Change the name after you've completed adding your units. To add more units, repeat the procedure but select the file location of the KOP that was previously created in C:\ProgramData\testfit\units.
