Hi All,

 

After going through the link

 

http://help.autodesk.com/view/RVT/2014/CSY/?guid=GUID-B3EE488D-2287-49A2-A772-C7164B84A648

 

i find out answer to my question i have posted, But the answer is valid only if i have my below element as Floor.

 

If i have Level as my below element then the ray passed doesnt give me any distance (proximity),

 

now my question gets filtered here, that is How to find Intersection with Level?

Dear Kailash Kute,

 

If all you need is the discance between the faily instance and the level, I see a possibility for a MUCH easier approach:

 

Ask the family instance for its bounding box and determine its bottom Z coordinate Z1.

 

Determine the elevation Z0  of the level.

 

The distance you seek is Z1 - Z0.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Cheers,

 

Jeremy

Dear @jeremytammik ,

Can you please explain, how can i get elevation Z0 of the level?

Look at the Level class members, and search for elevation:
