Hi Ben,

Really interested in seeing where this tool goes, our company has some dynamo scripts that create a bi-directional flow between AutoCAD and Revit for our MEP schematics, would you be interested in a discussion around this and we could feed-back what might be useful from an MEP perspective?

@nico.brown definitely! I’ll send you a DM with my email.

Also, welcome to the forum!
