In Revit it is possible to select elements in a linked model such as door, windows etc. by using the tab key until the correct element is selected. You can then use the copy (ctrl+C) and then paste an instance of the copied object into the parent project by using the paste in same place command from the modify toolbar.
I am trying to replicate this process in dynamo, so that I can do this with multiple objects at once. Below is my attempt but it keeps failing, it adds the families to the project but doesn’t paste the elements where they should be.
I have tried variations of this, once the families are in the project I have used dynamo to get the locations of the elements in the link then use these locations to place instances in the project. I had to translate the points using the link base point as this wasn’t the same as the main project basepoint even though both elements are in the same place in the project and are aligned by shared coordinates. However this still wouldn’t let me place the elements. I didn’t take a snapshot of this revised graph.
