    How to get coverred rooms?

    I want to check if a list rooms are covered.
    With the Room Boundary node I can get the bounding walls and the floor of each room, but not the ceiling.
    How could I have the ceiling please?

    I believe you could just enable volume calculations in Revit and the boundary node would recognize the ceiling. But if that is not an option, another method that I like to utilize is the "RayBounce" node. Essentially you shoot a beam off in a direction and see what it hits first.

    Nice raybounce method. This would be useful for reading the Offset of the ceiling and then setting the Limit Offset of the Room/Space. Especially if ceilings are not room bounding for some reason.
