Place Family Instance on a Face

Hello Smiley Happy

I would like to get some help on placing family instances on faces.

I have been able to place them but not able to align them to host elements correctly… (please see the attached screenshot!)

Does anyone know how to solve this issue? other than rotating element after placing…

Any help would be really appreciated.



Not familiar with Python, but if I was to do it with OOTB nodes I’d look at creating a Coordinate System aligned to the selected face and then Transform the geometry to that Coordinate System.

I am having a similar issue hosting receptacles to wall faces. Any luck with this?
