    Profile Hosting in a Sweep Extrusion

    It just slapped me in the face where I downloaded some mfr profiles mixed in with my own creations (profiles). So when I select a loaded profile to define the sweep in a family I get different Origin points. I've played with setting different RP's as the origin within them, but I need some help understanding the behaviors of how the profiles locate themselves & how to make a hodgepodge of them "kosher". Yes, I can start from scratch with the same template, but I just want to understand the behavior in a sweep profile a little more since I've rarely used this method vs more commonly the Edit Sketch method. Does it matter on the Profile Usage Parameter & or the Family Template used like Hosted vs Non-Hosted or Reveal, etc...

    Need some knowledge growth in this area.

    Can anyone reverse engineer the theory in this YouTube video below. It says the user is from Tunisia, & with ISIS in that area 2yrs ago (now Was-Was cause of #MAGA unchained the Military, lol) who knows if this knowledge has been lost. Would this be started with an Adaptive Component used as the nested Profiles with Family Parameter types?
