Revit to Radiance - prototype

Always expect the unexpected! :wink:

I was now able to figure out ConicalFaces and RevolvedFaces.
If possible, they will get exported as (a series of) cones.
I've also added functions to export topography meshes as either normal
Radiance triangles, or as Wavefront Object Files for use with obj2mesh.
It's still rough and clumsy, but seems to complete the basic task now.

Together with some cleanup of both code and output, this elevates
RRadout 0.2 to the status of "prototype".

It is now available from the following page:
聽聽聽http://www.schorsch.com/en/download/rradout/

@Andy, you may want to point the entrance on radiance-online to
this page, so you won't have to keep it up to date seperately.

Unfortunately though, further updates may not come quickly.
I don't currently have access to a Revit installation anymore.
So unless anyone else steps in, that will be it for the moment.

Regards

Wow, Schorsch -- that's quite the unexpected gift! We were just
talking about a Revit exporter at the last Radiance workshop.
Everyone agreed it was a good idea, but no one really knew where to
start. Thanks for giving us the leg up!

Cheers,

Would it be perhaps a good idea to start a Github page for this software?
Schorsch, have you decided on your licensing?

The license is pretty much equivalent to the MIT X11 license.
Maybe I should actually use their exact wording to have an unambiguous reference.

I've already mentioned the possibility of a Github project.
I just hesited to create that as long as there is still only a single file
to distribute.
