Placing objects in Revit based on specified Z coordinates

Hi friends
I’m trying to place objects like street light in Revit based on the specified X, Y and Z coordinates I have in a Excel file. I am using the Springs.Element.SetLocation node as shown in the picture below to set my elements’ start elevation based on the Z coordinates I have in my Excel file, but unfortunately it doesn’t work. I also tried Element.SetLocation node but it didn’t work too. Another problem is that it seems dynamo reads the Z based on the End Z (End Point). I want to set my object’s Start Z which is Zero now in my model as shown below. I attached my dynamo file here. Could anybody tell me where the problem is?
Thanks a lot

Could you please test it on a simple element like pile or column? Thanks

This is just a generic family which works as expected:

I think there’s som sort of constraint if your family that might be messing this up.
