I am trying to compose a Dynamo graph to do dimension of Curtain Wall Grids in Linked Model, however, it turn out an error “The references are not geometric references”.
I use the same graph for a Curtain Wall in main model (not on the Linked Model), it result turn out fine.
Then I try to think what the difference, then I composed a inspection tool to the dimension, then I discovered that the references of dimension on the main model able to be recognised as Curtain Wall Grids and Wall.
Then I did a manual dimension to see the references of dimension for Linked Model, it turn out all are RevitLinkedInstance.
Based on what it shown, it seems there is another layer data in the main model while trying to access the elements in Linked Model, which may not be ready in the current Dynamo version.
My questions, is it possible to do the dimensioning in main model for elements exist in Linked Model? I included my Work-in-progress dynamo graph and Revit model files for reference.
