Spot Coordinate?



Hi all,

just wondering how to use clockwork’s new node ‘Spot CoordinateByPoint’ what im getting is a null.


i believe that node is not working with planting family maybe @Andreas_Dieckmann or someone could help


That node is looking for a face. RPC trees don’t have a face in plan view. I don’t think that’s going to work. I haven’t really tried it on a great variety of element types.


i see,so it’s not possible?


Didn’t say that. :slight_smile:
What I meant is that I didn’t code that node to allow for anything else than a face reference.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you could try experimenting with it.
In the Python node within, you would have to change the TargetType in line 30, e.g. try changing FindReferenceTarget.Face to FindReferenceTarget.All
You can find a list of all the possible values here:


i did try @Andreas_Dieckmann suggestion but still didn’t work with planting and as he suggested try to add some geometry to your family.(works when i try)
