Watching Brian Mackey’s video on Intelligent Details he mentioned using Journals for scripting. There is a AU talk on this at the link below: Revit Journal Files: They Aren’t Just for Autodesk Support There are alsdo a couple of downloadable files that go with the video just for reference. This seems like agood way to
After looking at all the tutorial videos and doing the basic exploring features of setting up a Ribbon tab from tutorial code it is time to try and do something. I crashed and burned trying to adapt some code for selection and colouring and realised I was over reaching a bit. So I need to
After AutoCad, that had LISP, where you could write some simple code and get some useful tailored tools that helped your efficiency, I find Revit tailoring a lot more difficult. It is more sophisticated and so programatically there are more challenges, so the code needs to be a bit more complex, but some simple Keyboard
In my constant search for ways to automate trivial processes and make life easier I came across DropIt. A free flexible tool to automate processing & organizing files and folders On the above site it shows this flow. Basically you make a rule with actions on a file type/filter and it will do those actions.
I’ve been keen to do some temperature monitoring. This is IoT basics 101. I thought of a use case for my Beer Brewing. Jaycar had DS18B20 temperature sensors at $7.90$ NZ each. They are cheaper than the DH11 & DH22 which are more expensive as they do humidity as well. So I thought I’d start
I came across Node RED as I was looking into IoT projects to do with Raspberry Pi. You can use it on PC’s and on Raspberry Pi’s, it comes installed in the Noobs package. It is an Open Source visual programming language that you plug actions into each other to create a flow of actions.
While on the Raspberry pi site, in the download section, there is a 3rd Party OS for Windows and I thought I’d like to try that out. My VPS is a windows server and I thought it would be interesting if I could boot the RPi up with different OS’s. There is a setup page
Further to my earlier article ” Physical Ms Flow button -IoT part 1” I have been tinkering around with Arduino code & Flow buttons a bit more. Some successes and some failures. The failures I cannot seem to connect to the device any more. So updating the code in Arduino desktop does not re-install on
After my partial success with the Arduino chip button test I thought I’d dust off my Raspberry Pi 3 Model B that I’d bought years ago. I hadn’t played with it, I’m not sure why. I’d taken it out of its packaging but hadn’t even installed the micro SD card with Noob setup. So I
