Well, he can hack away at Dynamo anyway.
This time I will give the age old problem with hardscape following topo a go.. Or is it a problem??
Just the other day I discovered Marcello Sgambelluris post about how to get a hardscape elements to follow a topo: The Revit Complex and the AU session about the same thing (google it!).
I found it very interesting, and it's a beautiful workaround solution using dwg export and import to get a wall to follow a topo.
Quite inpired by the post, with Dynamo being all it is and my recent post about piles in mind, I felt that it had to be some other way using Dynamo.
For this post I focused on a fenceline.
What I ended up with was a solution where you model your fence line with model line elements, each as long as between two posts, using a two-point adaptive family as the fence family and then with some Dynamo magic (Not to be confused with the illusionist) you get a fenceline following your topo.
the family in use here is just a fence "rig" and you could always make a more detailed family, but I think it shows the trick! :)
|Before, with Site plan, 3d-view and two-point fence family|
so with the topo and model lines selected we get this:
