I’ve been creating a family that contains several parts that need to be placed seperately, I managed to streamline a lot of that using Sastrugi’s pick points on worklplane (thanks a ton for that one @Ewan_Opie) as well as using this great python script which creates pop up window from which you can get data (I’m still having projects in Revit 2017 so making use of a more advanced Dynamo Player isn’t really an option).
Anyway, with placing the parts I’ve ran into one problem: the angle of the family. I’ve already tested it with angles I put in manually and it has worked out just fine using ‘FamilyInstance.SetRotation’ and some other calculations. It would however be a whole lot easier if I could just find the angle of the current view. If it’s even possible, it would help me out quite a lot.
Thanks in advance!
