Hi all - I’m having some difficulty with the Springs.HostedInstance.ByPoints node - this all started when I was trying to create a graphical representation of each door type in my project - I started by generating wall segments for each door type, and then wanted to host the door types in the walls using the custom node. It worked… sort of, except that no matter what I did with lacing, list levels, etc., it either placed the same door type at each wall or placed three or four door types in the same wall, or placed 3 or four door types in different walls and ignored the rest. So… as a test I froze that node and switched my family and types to furniture - this worked just fine - a unique furniture type instance was placed at each wall segment. At that point I assumed there was something funky going on with the custom node, so I put it on the back burner while I did some other things.
Today I decided to revisit, but take things a bit slower - baby steps. And I’ve run into another snag with Springs.HostedInstance.ByPoints. In the graph below, I’m simply getting a list of all wall segments in my project, finding a point on the walls, and adding a single door type to all wall instances at that point. The graph works just fine in Manual mode, but as soon as I switch to Automatic, it hangs until I use Task Manager to kill Dynamo and Revit.
Has anybody experienced similar issues with the node? If I freeze it and use an “out of the box” node to place non-hosted family type instances, I have no problems.
Thanks in advance, and Happy New Year!
