    Placing a Door into a wall with Dynamo?

    I'm creating a dynamo script where you input the Length and Width of the simple building and it draws your grids, and tiltup walls based on the parameters you put in, this part works great. The walls are drawn by using Point.ByCoordinates for the start and end points, then a Line.ByStartPointEndPoint is created connecting the two, and finally a wall is generated using Wall.ByCurveAndHeight.

    I'd like to host a door in each wall panel, but for some reason, any attempt i do to place the family instance fails..
    Does anyone have any guidance on placing a door/window family in a wall?

    I've tried using to learn from this dynamo script:
    Topic: How to put a door or window object on the wall ? | Dynamo BIM
    but all it does is run through the task, return no errors, but not actually place any objects.

    Need a bit more info to give advice why it's not working.

    Here's a quick sketch how it can work:

        alright, I might need one more tip, i swapped out the walls in your graph, for walls generated by points and hit a stumbling block. both the Wall and the curve are created, but nothing is passing into the spring nodes. any suggestions?

          Ryan, I believe it's because you have the 'same distance' between nodes, so in essence Dynamo is trying to run a couple simultaneously.

          Try adding in a passthrough node (Clockwork package) before your Spring Node. If you can't figure it out - just holla.
