Set Work Plane of Family (Model face based) By Excel input

How to edit the work plane of a family from excel strings?


  1. Export x,y,z to excel
  2. Use x,y,z from excel te place another family.

Problem with placing the families are all on the first level. That’s because the family is face based. If I use a generic family. The placing x,y,z is wel correct.

So for the next step I want to change the z with the level of the work plane.

This a old topic from 2016.

Did you try a workflow like this?

Face based families need a different method of placement.
