Archi-lab breaks native codeblock references



With the latest archi-lab package installed the native “FamilyInstance.ByPoint” will not function in a codeblock and if you try to turn the native “FamilyInstance.ByPoint” into a codeblock via the “NodeToCode” option Dynamo will crash.

I suspect the package recycles some reference names that shouldn’t be duplicated. Pulling the package fixes the problem.

Dynamo Pack & Go?

The issue is that Dynamo doesn’t currently know what to do with namespaces and classes that use the same name. So there is a class in that’s called FamilyInstance and it creates family instances by line. There is also a class in dynamoRevit called FamilyInstance and that causes confusion as to which one to use when the code block searches for references. I will rename mine to something else and it should be good. It will be fixed in 2018.0.9.


Thanks Konrad!
