How to get Geometry from Linked Model?


#1

Hi,

I would like to get the linked model geometry to find the intersection area and volume by Dynamo. But I found that Element.Geometry cannot function normally for Linked model.

Do anyone know how can to obtain the geometry from link model?? Thank you.

Try the Collector.LinkedInstaceElements from spring nodes.

Thank you! This what I look for.

Unfortunate, I found that this cannot solve my situation. I want to create a void by geometry intersection, but seems that I cannot create a void by that intersection (is there any way to create in-place model by dynamo??).

Anyway, thanks for you help!

Start a separate topic, but likely familyonstance.bygeometry is what you are after.
