Can't set curve of Structural Columns

Hi guys,

Basically I have a set of existing columns and would like to set the curve from Rhino. But I get the followind error.

  1. RevitAPI: The input familyInstance is not of a structural framing category.

Hi @mucahitbgoker,

There is a fix on 1.5 RC3 related to something similar on beams that I think will apply to Columns.

Could you please test it?

I am on the latest daily build?

There is a fix for this that will be released tomorrow on v1.6 RC

Interestingly Element Curve node doesn’t work on Vertical Columns even when the input curve is vertical. But it does when switched to End-Point Driven. Is this the expected behaviour?

Is not. :smile:

I guess it needs one more tweek for this kind of columns.

user2740, In the Element Parameter component you have non-grafted elements and grafted parameter, this causes a mismatch in your trees.

In this case you should use List Item get a one element to go into the Query Elements Parameters component, which will return a single parameter Element which can then be used against your flat list of Elements going into Element Parameter.
