So I’m using RIR to do the column dimensions on floor plane.
I’m adding Detail Line for references and the error message shown as below.
It usually happens when I alter the input, then I had to make a new Add Detail Line component and it works again… any ideas?
Just an additional wondering, since detail line can’t turn into “invisible line”,
is “adding detail line as reference” the current method for linear dimension?
I’m trying to avoid adding lots visible lines one the drawing.
Dimensioning in Revit via the API takes some setup, our current components aren’t equipped to handle many common scenarios.
Here’s a start on Dimensioning a Family to the nearest Horizontal and Vertical Grid. This isn’t going to solve your problem and currently only works for one element with Named References. I’ll tweak it a bit tomorrow to make it a little more friendlier.
