Seemed to of encountered an issue when placing family multiple times in a project using Dynamo script.
I have a script that reads an excel file to get coordinates for a building floor, i then use FamilyInstance.ByPoint to place a family at every point location.
This works great…
However, when I run through to process again selecting a different file for the next floor (different X,Y,Z values) the dynamo script removes all the objects placed on the previous floor and places the family instance at the new coordinate points.
Regardless of whether i save the revit file, exit both revit & dynamo after a single run. It just does the same removes previous set of elements and re positions them.
I have had a look at the element Id, of the family instances dynamo seems to be re-using these whenever i run the script.
Am I doing something wrong or missing something to fix the placements and place a new set objects…!
Hopefully someone can shed some light on this, I have seen that others have encountered similar issues.
