Hi @Arsany123 the node in use is from a much older version of BimorphNodes and there’s no backwards compatibility.

You need to manually remove the CurveFromCADLayers node from your graph and replace it with the latest version (it still has the same name). That should resolve the issue.

Thanks a lot Mr.Thomas.really appreciated

Hello Guys ,
The tool is working with me but only when the Auto cad file contains single poly line but from the moment there more than one poly line it doesn’t work .any advice please.

Hi @Arsany123

Firstly, provide a file and a screenshot at the very least as you haven’t explained your problem succinctly.

You could try the following which may resolve the issue:

  1. Import and explod the DWG; if you see no polylines then its a problem with the DWG which can normally be resolved by exploding the curves in Autodcad before linking to Revit.

  2. Install BimorphNodes v2.2.51 or above as it includes a fix for bug found with polyline conversion. However the problem you describe is different to the problem it fixed so it’s unlikely to be related

  3. Ensure the polylines are polylines and not other non-convertible types (meshes or shapes)

Hi @Arsany123

You should group your curves before you feed into Polycurve.Byjoined node then your good to go.

Thanks @Kulkul i appreciate your help but i cannot control which level i can place my floors based on the AutoCad file.i would like to read the levels in the revit file then i can choose which levels this floors will be placed.

@Arsany123 That is pretty straight forward just use Element.SetParameter Node.
