I pulled all of the levels into Dynamo then ran the “GetParameterValueByName” on the Elevation. Notice that many of the elevations that were even inches in Revit start showing up with a 39/64" fraction at the end. Then I push that value back into a length parameter called “Project Elevation”. When the data gets back to Revit, the 39/64" is gone. What???
I’m glad that it somehow correct itself, but I’m uneasy about using the seemingly erroneous values to do any calculations in Dynamo before sending back (will the error still disappear, or will it show up once I “do math” to it?). Can anyone explain what is going on here? Interestingly, if I do Level.Elevation followed by Meters.Feet, I get doubles that are dead on accurate. That seems to point to something in either the feet’-inches" value conversion that is happening either in Dynamo or in Revit…
I can work around it, but I’d rather understand the “why” so I can be on the lookout for other places this might happen.
