How to extract insulation thickness based on the unit of Revit model

Dear friends

I’m extracting some attributes of my mechanical model such as Insulation Thickness, Insulation Type, Overall Size, etc. Insulation Thickness in my Revit model is in mm, but Dynamo, as shown in the below picture, gives me the thickness in ft. Could anybody tell me how I can solve this problem?


I get everything in millimeters. I did a fast google research and didn’t find anything.
Maybe it’s because I use Dynamo 2.0.1, you might give a try.
Or you can use ConvertUnit nodes, but the approximation might be wrong.

When I used Element.Parameters, for me it also shows 25mm but when I want to get the value of this parameter, it gives me 0.082

It is strange

Upgrade to 2.0 and this should clear up. Based on how the parameter is pulled - Element.Parameters uses a method more similar to how the Revit parameters pallet shows the data. In 1.x and prior the value is listed in the units which Revit uses under the hood (imperial).

@JacobSmall I tried with version 1.3.3 and it works fine, I really have no idea:
