I am trying to find what a floors offset is from its host level.
Given this is an instance item, my first issue is that I cant only call instances- it is also calling types of all floors in the project. So my first question is now can I only all active instances.
For the sake of this example, I only recorded floors after index 10, as I knew these were the instances.
My second challenge, and this is part of a bigger project, I have just itemized this down, is that I can not seem to call the height about host level through the built in parameter:
It doesn’t return a value. I know I must be doing something wrong here- but I cant put my finger on it. As part of my bigger project- I am making a new floor and then directly once I have made it, I want to be able to check the offset its sitting at for checks and balances.
