Place family into a Selected Surface.(Ceiling )

Hi Everyone,

I have a problem, placing an object on a surface that is similar to an old thread. place family by point-bug by @tomasz.puchala. I am experiencing something similar now where the object gets placed in a different location after re-running. :slightly_frowning_face:

Even though, I saw a suggestion from @Kulkul to use Python Script as per the thread FamilyInstacne.ByPoint overwrite for similar problem.

Even after trying it, I am not able to fix the issue. The family objects are been placed in different locations when re-running the script or after reopening the file. I am clueless even after using Python if the same issue is repeated, which forced me to post it again. Animation

I need the objects (family) to be placed on the points on the surface and where the origin of the family object is in the center of the object. I need something like this

I had attached my dynamo script and Revit file if anyone would like to have a look into the issue.

It will be great if someone could help me out.

Thank you and have a nice day :smiley:
