Form.ByGeometry “bakes” any solid, polysurface or surface passed into it into the active Revit family environment as a Free Form Element type (native Revit geometry). This should be used in the place of ImportInstance.ByGeometry in every instance. (a similar result can be achieved with the FamilyInstance.ByGeometry from a project level). In some cases you should even see handles appear which will allow you to manipulate the goemetry to some level once it is “baked” into Revit.

Why is Form.ByGeometry by geometry no longer available in dynamo? Is it because it is actually a work flow between rhino and revit that works and dynamo want us to pay for it? What happened to ‘open source?’
Form.ByGeometry is not available by default in dynamo. You need to download the Spring Nodes packages in order to use it.
