Dear Everyone

I would like to put Dimension (Spot Coordinates) on pipes
My quesion is:

In python:
doc.Create.NewSpotCoordinate(view, REFERENCE, p1, p2, p3, p4, True)

Can someone help me with REFERENCE?

*(I tried with “FamilyInstance.GetReferenceByName” but it’s not working with pipes, only FamilyInstances)

Thank you

Hi @akos90,

The Clockwork package has the SpotCoordinate.ByPoint node for this task.

Otherwise you could look in the Genius Loci package in which there are nodes that produce references.


That Genius Loci package helped me a lot. I would never have guessed that pipes only have point references, this is why i get null values all the time. Thanks for your time!
