Place Family Instance by Transform from Linked

#1

Hi, Is it possible to place family instances by TotalTransform obtained from linked file? A useful case would be when trying to place pipe fittings, the transformation in linked (rotation, flip etc) would be used. I realized that API has the ElementTransformUtils.CopyElements that allows to copy the elements and placed it based on the transformation, and I wonder is it possible to do such by placing family instance (instead of copying). I’m trying to avoid copying as (weirdly) it took too long for the process to finish (as I posted here).

Use Springs.Collectors.LinkedInstanceElement.

Hi @Kulkul, but how do I place the elements in the current documents with the exact same position/orientation/transform, given that I have that exact family in my current document? That’s the only thing I can’t seem to solve.
