I use this node to create geometry for a space. It crashes Dynamo every time there is a space that “bleeds” into another space. When glancing at the spaces and rooms they appear fine. When there is a gap of some sort the node just falls apart. I sometimes can get it to run and created nodes to identify the bad spaces. This is very time consuming to troubleshoot.

How are others dealing with this issue?

Actually @Kulkul suggested a node in this thread https://forum.dynamobim.com/t/place-space-name-and-number-of-area-served-by-vav-into-vav-mechanical-equipment-parameter/8740/2. His suggestion for Element.Space bypasses having to create the geometry to see if it intersects. This was a great suggestion.
