If you want to place families just use “FamilyInstance.ByPoint” node. Why are you using Point.ShiftCoordinates node?

hi kulkul, i tried that already but it’s just the same result

@interactiverendering it is units - if I change your Revit project units to Feet and Fractional Inches the elements are placed correctly, and are not if I revert back to mm. This works as a solution without having to change your Project Units:

EDIT: I might have spoken too soon :speak_no_evil: - this works to correct the point layout, but it also moves them very far away from the Project Base Point, there might be a better solution I’m not thinking of

Thank you. Yup it resolved the issue of point layout, now its the right location im looking at.
