    Instance(xyz) vs Global(xyz)

    i try to change my 5 points AC roof truss to 3 points AC roof truss, well, i'm firm believer of "less is more".

    seems working except the inconsistent between rfa and rvt, i need to "rotate" column portion 90 degree in rfa so it will look OK in rvt

    i used Orients to Instance(xyz) in 5 points version, and Orients to Global(xyz) in 3 points version.

    anyone have idea what causes this bizarre situation? thanks

    sort of working now after i used Global(z) then Host(xy), but i may still have to adjust Rotation Angle in rvt, perhaps it's unavoidable?!
