Detail Item geometry

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if I can get the geometry of a detail item into dynamo? attached a photo of the detail item where I need to get the line of this detail item.

detail%20item

if I recall, you can’t get it for instances but you can for the family type. Note that this will not have any geometry mutations due to instance parameter value changes, not will it be in the correct location, so you will have to apply the instance mutations and the transforms acordingly.

If that sounds difficult, it’s because it is.

A better solution in your case may be to get the element’s location, and assuming you have a line based element, you should get the resulting line as desired.

Thank you Jacob, I solved the problem by getting the element location as a point then get local axes of the element as vectors, by point, vector and distance I got the line finally
