Error in parameter type for addInstance

Hi all,
I am currently trying to instantiate multiple copies of a part studio on an array of points. I currently have:

const instantiator = newInstantiator(id + "myId");
addInstance(instantiator, elbowTest::build);

However, I am getting an error stating "Call addInstance(Instantiator (box), function) does not match addInstance(..., PartStudioData)," even though the SLD states addInstance can have PartStudioData type. If anyone has any insight to the reason for this error, that would be very helpful.

Bonus Q: If I have an array of points, and I would like to instantiate elbowTest on all of those points, how would I do that?
