    Unhappy Sloped floor opening family

    Hello, again I've got a question about opening families.
    Is there any way to create a family that will cut sloped floor in vertical axis and ensure proper working of "invisible line underlay trick"?

    If I create wall based gm, and untick "always vertical" it's axis is going to rotate perpendicularly to the host floor and then invisible line trick is going to fail. It's just not showing underlay, what is logic.

    So can i create any "always vertical" family that will work with sloped floor host?

    I just thought about sth during that typing...
    Will combination of "always vertical" underlay child family, and non "always vertical" opening parent fimily work if nested? Or parent family will override vertical properties of nested family?

    Cheers

    Use a face-based family and you can host it to whatever object type you want For a floor (roof or ceiling) you can also use the Vertical Opening (or shaft if it needs to cut multiple levels) to get your cut as well. Help

    I was thinking about face-based family, but still, will invisible line trick work with it?
    And the problem with fb family is that it wont fit to floor's thickness. So you have next parameter to contrlo if you dont want your void to stick out of the host floor.

    What's more, I need a family. I want to tag it with shared parameters that I could instantly get dimensions of it.

    Anyway. my idea about nested family was stupid... After all child family will be based at floor based family plane, so it will we "vertical" to the floor... :P

    I'm not sure which invisible line trick you are referring to

    Ha! I got it! I just had not to lock my void to floor. I left it extended over/under floor levels. Now with "always vertical" tick it's cutting sloped floors in vertical axis and invisible line trick is working well

    Thx for your effort cellophane

    Well im talking about that trick http://revitrocks.blogspot.com/2012/...ine-trick.html
