    Down Pipe Creation

    Has anyone done it? Has it worked correctly?

    Im trying to create a parameter based downpipe, rather than individual DP files

    The goal is to have it so i can adjust the width of the eave, the pitch of the roof, and the DP will automatically change to the correct position, included the angle of the turn of the down pipe.

    my issue is i cant seem to define the interesction where the angle of the turn meets the eave width. i always use rerference lince and set everything up from that but im struggling to even get that to work in this instance!

    Has anyone done this or attempted it before? Is it a lost cause?

    Revit 2012: you can now use Adaptive Components in the project environment.

    Hoping this will could be a good solution for downspouts.

    Scott.

    Here´s a couple of examples that you can have a look at - Notice that most of the parametric dimensions is instance based, so they can be dragged and locked to fit the model

    And like Jonas suggested, AC´s could also be an interesting solution in Revit 2012

    Perhaps something like this?

    Use: draw downspout using 5 points. Switch types for round versus square. Use radius parameter on an instance basis for sizing.

    Thanks you very much!!

    That's very helpful! Even for 2015, revit still has no down pipes (spouts) in the library, which is a pretty fundamental component in an architectural drafting program.
