Beams and Dynamo



First let me just say that I am very new to Dynamo, I’ve watched a bunch of tutorials, but don’t have a complete grasp of all the features.

What I’m looking to do is to draw detail lines adjacent to a beam, maybe offset by a few inches. I’m thinking I would go about this by getting the start and end points of the family / elements that I want to create lines from, and then drawing the lines in dynamo from that list. But I’m not entirely sure how to go about that.


See image. You don’t need the start and end points to do what you are asking, but i included how to get that in the image as well.
