Hello dears,
i want to make a dimension for all Structures columns like this

the problem is how can i select the left or right references or up & down, to make the dimension
i have tried the Genius Luci nodes but it give nulls

Any ideas ?

Hi @khuzaimah.ElecEng,

This only works if the references are defined in the family.

See if this helps…

Apologies for the mess, I’m working at speed :slight_smile: Hopefully you can optimise and adapt it…

If the columns are all rectangular then that will help… You know that you will (almost) always want faces 0 & 2 and 1 & 3 for your references etc.

Alban has a Dimension By References node which I would use…
