Extracting geometry/data from model groups



I have several model groups that are referenced into Dynamo. Is there a way to get all elements within that group without un-grouping it. The Element.Geometry node doesn’t seem to work. I am using version Is there a better node to use?

I am trying to work out the rotation of model group. The API doesn’t seem to allow this so I have created a model line within the group which I need to extract so that I can compare it against Project North orientation. Its off that you can get the rotation of a family but not a model group.





Lucky for you, Julien Benoit has developed a great node in his custom package called “Steam Nodes” just for that. The package is Tool.ElementsInGroup:
