Design approach pile component for piling box

Dear all,

I am trying to resemble the Revit example for a piling box as below

I have taken a U-profile and parametrized from a vendor catalogue and added a design table as follows

My nooby idea is to draw a rectangle polyline and project the component along and then to adjust either U-profil component and/or rectangle size in order to arrive at proper corner overlaps.

What would be a flexible approach to this matter?

Kind regards



  • My first approach is to insert the created component, then insert another attache them according to shape as below

    And projecting the solids as ARRAYRECT:

    Then I add a single component to finish the corner. I am not able any longer to edit properties (e.g. length) for a single pile. Better would be to preserve the ability to edit the length for every single item.

  • Why not creating a Block for one part and do an Array.
    Is it that Revit offers you to automatically fill them around any Polygon ?

  • @Michael Mayer
    In Revit it seems to be called a line-based row ("Reihe Linienbasiert") which I would interprete as an array. One is able to scale dynamically, so it could be an _arraypath

    The detail looks as follows. I interprete one pile as a component. They seem to be stitche to a group.

    Seems like I need to learn about _arraypath and how to generate components to align properly
