    Angry Exporting Geometry through the API


    I'm trying to export all of the geometry contained in a Revit Model, to work with my own OpenGL-based 3D engine, and for some reason, I can get some, but not all of the geometry. Anyhow, I'm basically using the get_Geometry() method of a Revit Element instance and then work my way down to all of the triangular faces. Now, that works for most of the projects, but I encountered an example where I couldn't get everything to show up. In one of the training files, c_Condominium, railing Elements return a Geometry.Element objects consisting of a Solid and an Instance, but their geometry is empty, the solid has no faces and the SymbolGeometry member of the Instance is null, so no triangles are generated. I guess that someone must have a working viewer for Revit elements (samples in the SDK don't work as well) so does anybody have any ideas and is at liberty to discuss them?

    If you're not already a member of ADN, I would suggest that you become one. This would be an issue that you'd need to address with Autodesk directly.

    Hope that helps,
