@alirahbar_2000 ,

you can try to access the faces itself?

As beams are linear in nature, they don’t have a facing orientation, this node will fail. Point based families work quite well with this node. Likely you want something like Element.Location > Curve. TangentAtParamter or Curve.Plane. Note that the later may not return the type of results you’re after. It’d be best to post a sketch showing what direction you’re trying to get to.
