    Post Adaptive component - asphalt profile

    Hi everyone!
    I have a video showing my problem, I believe you can see a description.
    Anyway, I want the edges of the profile to move with adaptive points on the ends, while the points are attached to a plane different from adaptive points. Points should be attached to a plane of a reference line connecting 2 adaptive points because the edges of the profile shouldn't differ if the slope of asphalt changes.
    Left side works as intended, but right side doesn't. This happens every time I try to create this, even using some reference lines intersections for points of the form profile. If I use dimensions, it does not matter, because the problem is that the reference line on the right side, that should move with the adaptive point, is not attached to adaptive point so it doesn't move with it, but then the question is 'Why does the left side work as intended?'

    Btw, when I first make right side of profile, then left side, it's vice versa, right side works, left side doesn't. Does anyone have an idea on how to make this work on both sides in all 3 directions in 3D?

    Easier if you upload your project, i have a hard time figuring out what's going on in your video

    Yes, here are 2 family files and 1 cad profile I use to draw inside Revit.
    AL2 behaves as it should, please try using AL2 in a new project to see how it behaves.

    AL3 has additional complexity in its section (see cad file), and I want those 2 extra breaking points on the right side behave the same way as those 2 on the left side. If anyone has any other idea for creating this type of element it is welcomed.
    I also tried massing the edging 2 parts then connecting them with dots but it just complicates it.

    I can't help but wonder, if reference lines and 3d snapped reference lines move when I move my '1st' left adaptive point on AL3, why doesn't then the right side reference line and 2 dots (snapping reference line) move with the 1st adaptive point then (I want them moved with 2nd adaptive point). Instead they choose to stay whether I move right or left adaptive point. Also, this should work in all 3 directions (as AL2 does), and there should be no surface breaks on the section once one adaptive point has been moved in 3D direction (this means section is in one plane made my reference line connecting 2 adaptive points).

    Please specify what you are trying to accomplish with this family. It's difficult to guess by looking at some lines and points if things are right or wrong. What are you trying to do?

    Hello, I took a second look at this. I don't know what steps you took to create the points. What I understand is that the points that are on the right side of adaptive point 1 do follow point 1, but the points on the left side of adaptive point 2 do not follow adaptive point 2. Not all points were hosted properly to their correspondent adaptive point. It seems to me that you created the points from an elevation view, because you had a .dwg drawing as a "template", and most likely you did not select a workplane of the adaptive point as the host for the reference points, or another host, like an auxiliary point on a reference line, placed at a certain distance from the endpoints of a line. The points that do move along with the adaptive point 1, do that as a result of some steps you took, but without really understanding, otherwise you would have been able to do it properly on the other side.

    My suggestion is to learn more about the properties of points in the adaptive template. Workplanes, hosts, offset, rotation, location along a line, etc. Also, try not to add thickness to adaptive families. it's better to use them for creating surfaces, and then add thickness in the project by wall by face or roof by face.
