Hi @RMohareb,

I would like to know which package contains the “RevitUtils.Get_Geo_BySubcategory” node.

Hi @MJB-online
BriMohareb_2023 package


what type of dimension do you need? linear or angular etc.

You are missing two inputs at the genius loci node. Shouldn’t you select a suitable view for placing the dimension line?

Hi @Marcel_Rijsmus
I need line dimensions

I try with section and plan. On both case the dimension is created but not visible and when use node to get property od the dimension it show the dimensions is in the location of the line based on the family coordinate system or project

The genius loci node measures from the first to the second reference. Then it needs the (auxiliary) line (and a suitable view) for placing the dimension line.

Hi @RMohareb , I was having the same issue in a section view trying to create a dimension from a subcategory line. The script said the dimension was created but it was not visible.

Did you get to fix this?


Yes, use brimohareb version 6 @JMCiller
