Floor.Create() method Revit APIs 2023

Hi there! I’m currently working on developing a Revit plugin through pyRevit and I’m having some trouble creating a new Revit triangular Floor starting from three vertices defined in Python. I am new to Revit APIs and I’m currently using Revit 2023.

I am aware that there are some changes in APIs with respect to previous releases, such as the new Floor.Create() method. However, when I run my code, I get the error message “ArgumentException : The input curve loops cannot compose a valid boundary, that means: the “curveLoops” collection is empty; or some curve loops intersect with each other; or each curve loop is not closed individually; or each curve loop is not planar; or each curve loop is not in a plane parallel to the horizontal(XY) plane; or input curves contain at least one helical curve. Parameter name: profile at Autodesk.Revit.DB.Floor.Create(Document document, IList`1 profile, ElementId floorTypeId, ElementId levelId)”.

Upon further inspection, I have checked the CurveLoop() and everything seems to be in order (it’s planar, closed, and counterclockwise). I would greatly appreciate any help in resolving this issue.
