    Creating a 3D View for each level with a corresponding Section box

    I'm trying to generate a section box that is applied to a 3D view that is specific to a level. so if there are 25 levels, there are 25 3D views, and just as example, lets say the section box goes from 0' below the level to 4' above the level. I've managed to create the bounding boxes that are in the appropriate place, but when i try to connect them View3D.SetSectionBox, it's just give a bunch of null, and applying only the first section box to all of the views.

    I think that particular node won't accept lists as input

    I'm planning to use this for coordination views between architecture, structure, MEP, etc, and slice up the 3D views by level.

    There is a newer version (a Zero Touch version, I think) of this Rhythm node located in RevitElements / View3D folder that should give you the result you want without further adjustments

    I'm not sure what you mean by Zero Touch. I've updated my Rhythm package and am still getting the same results.

    Zero Touch refers to a specific way to create custom nodes. They look like OOTB ones. If you are interested, you will easily find online resources about it, for instance here: Zero-Touch Importing | The Dynamo Primer
    Below is an illustration of what I tried to say. The old node (at left) returns null values but with lacing set to longest, it's doing what I want anyway. The new node does automatically what is awaited. My version of Rhythm is 2017.9.6

    so when i say that I updated my Rhythm package, I meant to say that Dynamo was thinking about updating.. and was really just giving me the old one.. I got the new one in there and it works great.
