Hello there. I trust you are all well and I wish you a Happy New Year!
Five years ago, I wrote a blog entitled “Exporting Pile Coordinate from Survey Point instead of Project Base Point” which you can find by clicking HERE and I wrote a follow-up blog entitled “Pile Cut-off Level using Dynamo” which you can find by clicking HERE. I felt it was time to write an update relating to these posts.
I know it’s been a while since I wrote something on my blog and I hope to be proactive once again and share with you everything that I might discover in my day-to-day work. In this comeback post, I’ll share with you how you can extract the structural pile coordinates using Dynamo, and this time, the script will not be as messy as before. The script is also playable in Dynamo Player
Pile Extract Coordinates via Dynamo V1 required inputs
Within your company, I believe you have built an in-house tool to do this or perhaps you have a third-party Revit plugin (paid or unpaid) that will give you the coordinates, but what if, for some reason, those tools ended up buggy and, when you come to need it badly, failed to work. This is where Dynamo can be handy.

This is what the script looks like:
