Location of steel plates


Is it possible to get the location o geometry of steel plates?? Considering the they are “special” elements, I’m wondering myself if anybody knows a node or python code.

Till now, I haven’t able to get the bounding box from steel plates neither get solids from them usign the Element.Solid node.

Thanks in advance

Different firms use different families for steel plates. What Revit category does your family use (e.g. structural framing, structural connection)? or post the family here so we can test it.

Structural Connection / Plates

I was able to retrieve solids with the Element.Geometry+ node from the clockwork custom package.
You need to input a 3d view that shows the elements.


Thanks a lot. I’ve tried without “view” and I got full nulls

I’m going to try linking a view again.
