Adding Family to Rod End Location
« on: May 28, 2019, 16:41:35 PM »
I'm trying to add a family instance to all the xyz coordinates of the Rod End Location of MEP fabrication Hangers. Anyone?

Have you tried using the export .csv node and kick out the points that way? A little less content to add to your Revit project by doing it.

It looks like you have access to Point layout. It will do this automatically.

Another thing you can do is just find the location of the hanger and then update the Z point to the level elevation that you want.

With a little python you can use

n = 1 if it is a clevis
n = 1 and 2 for two rod's hangers

x = ElementHere.GetRodInfo() << This will substract all the Rod related information
x.GetRodEndPosition(n)" that will give you the points you need

I hope this makes sense, I use this to run trimble check scripts that will report if a hanger has been moved since the last update, but I think is what you looking for.

Not sure if you ever found the script you were looking for above?  if you still need help let me know.  I have a script that I use to place families on the top of Fabrication hangers.
