Converting Points Between Coordinate Systems

Hello, I have been attempting to load family instances into Revit with Dynamo by coordinates. The issue I am having is that the coordinates I want to use are in the related to the survey point rather than the internal origin of Revit. I have found that Dynamo inserts points based on the internal origin relative coordinates and have been unable to find a way to use the survey coordinates instead. The closest I found was the Genius Loci node ‘Convert Point in Coordinate System’, however this only allowed the conversion of the internal origin point to the survey point and not the other way around. Any assistance would be appreciated.

You need to find the origin of your Shared Coordinates and translate your points accordingly. There are plenty of threads on the forum covering this topic as well as a few nodes that should help you avoid Python if that’s an issue for you.
