Unable to modify an element after creating it with Dynamo

Hi everybody !

I’m having some trouble with some columns I create with Dynamo. Basically, I’ve an excel files with coordinates, I create a point with this coordinates and then I use a family instance by point node to create my column.
It works just fine but when I’m trying to set the base level and the upper limit of my column it doesn’t work. The script seems to work, I don’t get any error. The problem seems to come from Revit, I can’t even modify these parameters manually when I close Dynamo …

The problem may comes from the family instance by point, I don’t know if it’s the same thing to create an element or a family instance …

Here is the dyn files and the excel files :

Coordonées Poteaux.xlsx (8.7 KB)
Poteaux.dyn (24.9 KB)

Thanks !

Hi @Nathan_Nivill,

Have you tried using the FamilyInstance.ByPointAndLevel?


Thanks, it’s working !

But I don’t understand why …
