I am working on a job where I need to provide coordinates for several elements (wall intersections, columns, etc.). With this in mind I have created a revit family with Instance shared parameters that will allow me to shedule them in Revit. My main issue is how to get that information into the family, automatically.
I’m fairly new with Dynamo so I followed a few scripts found in this forum (couldn’t find one that would apply completely to what I need) but I can’t seem to get the right coordinates accross to the family.
I’ve attach the dummy .rvt file and the .dyn. as well os a screenshot with Revit’s spot coordinate and the family’s coordinates I’m getting from dynamo. I’m using the same Survey point and Project base point on the original job.
Any help will be welcome.

Thank you for replying.
Just one question, are those coordinates relative to the Project base point or revit internal?
I’ll give it a go this afternoon and I’ll give you a shout later.
Thank you for all your help. I was finally able to make this work… The main issue I found is that the point coordinates were relative to Revit’s internal origin and I needed them relative to the survey point.
I ended up fiding a custom node from GeniusLoci that makes the coordinate system conversion.
Also I changed a few things to make it easier for me to use.
