    How to adjust planes for sweep and align some components in another workplane?

    Hi guys, it's me again - crazy girl, who tries to understand Revit

    I have some issues with adaptive component. I want to create profile with connectors on it's ends. First of all, it looks very strange from the top view - profile is turning around it's axis. Reference line's planes look exactly like I want - but when I draw lines on it, the result disappoints me It seems like problem is in the adaptive point normal reference plane, I tried to change orientation, but result is the same. Maybe it's stupid question, but I watched tutorials for 3 hours and didn't find answer What did I miss?

    And the second question - is it possible to align somehow form, which placed on the adaptive point plane, to the center of reference plane (see second screen)? The connector itself has to be on the horisontal plane of adaptive point. I mean, I want to draw this profile from 1st to 2nd point and then have a connector on it's end, but this connector axis has to rotate with the profile path from the one end(if you look from the top view only) and has parameter for rotation for second end.

    I think, it's similiar to brace kicker, and tried to do it in brace template, but couldn't solve problem with connectors.

    Maybe there is another way to do this? Any ideas?

    It´s not clear what you're trying to do. Maybe you should post a sketch of the desired final result.
    What do you mean by "a profile with connectors on its ends?

    I think, this screen explains better all inconsistencies:

    Maybe those tutorials did not cover this kind of topics.

    You need to define which rotations are needed: in one plane, in two planes, in three? Then use reference points to control those rotations.
