Element.Create 3d Cropped View (Steam Nodes) - How To Make It Work Consistently?

Trying to use ElementCreate 3d Cropped View from the Steam Nodes Package Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Can someone explain what conditions will make it work consistently? Usually the output for the Node is “Null” Is it a transaction sequence issue? Do I need to shut down revit and open it again for re-use? On the other hand, creating floor plan by room node seem to work consistently.

I hate to dig up an old post but I was having the same issues till I worked them out and this seems like as good a spot to put the answer.

The Element.Create 3D Cropped view node from Steam Nodes wouldn’t work unless you are in a 3D View.

doing some modification of it here:
