From conceptual mass to project

Hello everyone.
I was following the tutorial from Jeremy Roh about rotating panels. It worked well for in the conceptual mass template as he did in his tutorial, but actually, when moving to an architectural template and recreating the curtain panel (created the mass, i divided the surface and added the panel pattern based family). When running the script Dynamo shows the third node (adaptive component location) as an empty list of elements. Someone can address the error?

The only thing i can imagine about is that in the project template revit doesn’t use a proper coordinate system as it does in the massing template.

Thank you for your further replies.

pls show the graph ( with visible outputs) and the error

As you see the script is not working as it should do and as it does in the massing template.

Thank you for your replies.

Hi @Angelo.Limiti ,

Did you find a solution to the problem? I am struggling with a similar issue at the moment. Please do share if you’ve found a solution. Thanks!


Hi Antonio,

Not yet. The issue seems related to the fact that Dynamo works differently in the conceptual mass environment than for the architectural template. What probably will make it work is to change the settings to acquire the sunposition.

If you will find any solution I will be greatful to hear about it.


That is the problem indeed, Angelo.
I have seen other posts regarding the same issue and it seems like Mr @Vikram_Subbaiah has found a solution with a custom definition that I, unfortunately, couldn’t download from the post he had it attached. I have reached out to him and will let you know if we figure out the solution.


Can you attach the link to the post?
