Hi All,

I’m trying to create pipes from line curves, but unable to create one.
What I get is a null value.

Can anyone help me figure where the problem is ?

thanks in advance

Looks like you might not be feeding a system type or element type, but rather an element and a system. Try getting the parameter value for ‘type’ for both before feeding along your list. also make sure you’re feeding a single system and pipe type for each before progressing.

Hi @JacobSmall

I’ve attached my script for your reference.

…what is missing in the MEPover package since you want to built your own nodes?


#7

I need to model pipes using lines, all I have now created is a line using “Point.By coordinates” node and “Line.StartPointEndPoint” node.


created

Next is to use “Pipe.ByLines” Node from MEPover Package

I don’t know what the error is in the python script since I’m new to it.
But I want to know two things:

  1. Am I doing the right way (using the snips above)?
  2. Is there an alternative solution to this?

Figured out what the problem was.
