I am using Familytype.bygeometry to create a 3d solid from CAD.
The problem is that I cannot find the mass created in Revit although it is created in the dynamo. I have checked the VG and enabled the mass visibilty but in vain.
Any help will be appreciated.
Here is my graph.
Thanks, Draxl for your reply.
I have read your solution there but I think my case is different. I have the SAT file exported from CAD and I want to create a Revit object to deal with into my Revit project. When using FamilyType.ByGeometry, it creates the mass in the family but the family itself is nowhere in the project even when I select it.
you have to import the sat file f.e. to a generic model familiy template
or alternativly place it in a projectfamily
AAHH I got you. It works perfectly now. Thank you.
But do you know why the family created with the node of FamilyType.ByGeometry does not appear in the project although it has the mass inside it?
i think it runs just in the correct enviroment. I detected Familiytemplates and projectfamilies. In a project itselft it does not work…
I found out that the node just creates the family in the project but does not place it. It should be put manually.
Thanks @Draxl_Andreas, I will mark your reply as solution.
try to continue with FamilyInstance.ByPoint … after the creation
Yeah it is the best workflow.
