"ClosestPoinTo" Node, What am I doing wrong?

Hi everyone,

I am trying to make this node work with a really simple exercise and I cannot make this node work properly. I am pretty sure I must be doing somthing wrong, but I cannot figure it out.

In the first picture the node works perfectly, but if I move the objects the closest point that Dynamo points out is not the closest.

Did anyone have the same problem? Any ideas?

Thank you very much in advance.

@Ambrosio_Gomez_Moral Check if the polycurve and the family instances are all in the same plane

Hi there,

Thank you for your comment. Yes, all elements are in the same plane :frowning:

@Ambrosio_Gomez_Moral Could you share a small file (with the issue)?

Hi Vikram,

I will definitely.

It is curious, if I lace “ElementGeometry” directly to “ClosestPointTo” it works, however the problem become when I convert the geometries (two lines) into a Polycurve as I want to convert the two lines in one (line or curve - one geometry)

I will upload the little model later on.

Thank you very much.

@Ambrosio_Gomez_Moral Try creating a Nurbs Curve instead (using the vertices of the lines and degree )

Thank you Vikram and sorry for the late answer.

By Nurbs Curbe it works perfectly.

Thank you very much.
