Revit: Report mirrored doors orientation on nested linked files

Here is a new cool problem to solve, how to deal with mirrored doors on series of nested buildings.

When we flip a door using the flipping controls, the parameters HandFlipped  & FacingFlipped are settled to true. This creates 4 states of door positions.

AU 2016 Part 1 – Import Geometry from Rhino to Revit

The guys from Perkins+Will show us a few workflows to import geometry to Revit from different platforms.
