Types of Coordinate Properties

There are four types of coordinate properties:

Point coordinates represents a single location point for an element – the meaning depends on the kind of Revit element:

Types of Revit Coordinate Properties

Line1, Line2
Line1 and Line2 represent the two end-points of the line associated with a particular family instance. Line coordinates apply to line-based families only:  Ducts, Walls, Curtain Walls, Pipes, Railings, Fascia, Gutters, Structural Framing, Trusses.

LineXY Angle
The angle as defined by the the XY points of Line 1 and Line 2. This property is particularly useful as it relates to Grid management.

Box_Upperleft, Box_Lowerright
These coordinates represent the lower-left and upper-right corners of the three-dimensional rectangular bounding-box that contains the element. Bounding-box coordinates apply to: Floors, Ceilings, Roofs, Structural Foundations, Rooms, Spaces and all elements in Multi-Category links.
