    Titleblock Locations

    Somehow my titleblocks are wonky and are not all located at the same origin, meaning I can't copy aligned to sheet without having to do a lot of manual fixing. Is there a way to set the titleblock locations to all be the same? I can pull the titleblock X, Y & Z location but can't figure out how to reset that...

    Just did a bit of searching on my phone, apparently theres an Element.SetLocation (or something like that) node.
    There are no stupid questions, only stupid people

      If SetLocation doesn't work, you could simply generate a Vector.ByTwoPoints, with the origin being one point, and your GetLocation being the next, reverse the vector and simply translate the family back

        I had tried Element.SetLocation yesterday and didn't have much luck. Did some googling on it and found this thread: https://forum.dynamobim.com/t/spring...orking/8930/10 - in particular Jacob's response about the Element Has Location function and the reply afterwards about the API. Seems you can set it through the API but that is way over my head... Anyone know how to do that?

          Hey Cellophane,

          I am the one who started the dynamo forum post. I never found a way to move a reference point.

          I have however moved title blocks. I am guessing the three title block location you have are all from different title blocks?

          I created a script to place things on sheets. I ran into a problem that all of our title block were in slightly different location. I tried to subtract the difference from the origin but it was off by a smaller amount than 1/256" and Revit would not deal with it. Long story short I moved all of the title block to the origin in the family.

          I used dynamo to draw a line from 0,0 to some point. I then manually moved the title block (in the family) to the end of the line at 0,0. They were easy to move since you can just select everything and move it all together.

          This will shift every title block in your project. so it could mess up every sheet depending on how you have them set up.

          Hope this will help you. If you have any question please ask. Your post have helped me a great deal over the years.

            Thanks Steven.

            The problem I'm running into is that I moved the title block origin in the family and reloaded, which shifted them in the project. Some were adjusted to be fixed, some were adjusted but by an incorrect value (??) and some are where they loaded in initially. I'd prefer not having to manually go through every sheet if possible...

              Oh sorry you are one step ahead of where I thought you were.

              Are you looking for a way to reposition all of your title blocks in the project after you reload the moved family?

              If so do you know the distance each family moved or are you trying to move each title block to 0,0 in the sheet view?



              I just did a test run and it seams to have worked for me. see image

                I'm a moron. I was lacing from the Element.GetLocation node instead of the All Elements of Category node :banghead:

                Thanks for the assist! :beer:
