Add Points to an Existing Topography

Hello Guys,

I’ve looked up at this forum for other topics with this matter, but couldn’t find anything… I’m trying to create a script to add points to an existing topography, I’ve found this topic in Revit Forum (Solved: Add Points to TopographySurface Error: Not permitted to start - Autodesk Community) and I’ve tried to translate the code to Python via Rhino.Inside… It appears to work, since the topography starts its edit mode, but the points won’t add !!

I’d appreciate any help ! see attached the code ! (4.4 KB)
