Dynamo Placing & Connect Fire Dampers

Summary from YouTube Channel:

“Placing & connecting Fire Dampers at Linked Model rated walls with Dynamo and Python. This has been the must awarding script I have worked on to date. Not because of what it does, rather the teamwork and now friendship that it took with Taco Pover who lives crossed the world in Netherlands. After over 40 emails and a few video chats we achieved our goal and took another step towards automation of MEP design. A few other packages were used as well. Thanks everyone who contributes to this amazing opensource community.”
