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
Sharing the Excel-file and the family will make it easier to test

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.
Could you please send me your family to let me test it too in my PC?
