    Reference Plane Issue

    Hi,

    In the family editor for my glass extrusion I pick a reference plane which is in the center of the door. After completing the extrusion I load the family into the project and I see the glass has this offset, for some reason it is outside of its reference plane. What is the issue?

    what family type? How was the glass created, is it a nested family? You picked the RP but did you lock the center of the glass to the RP (only works with a nested family)? Or if your glass is created in your family it needs a locked EQ/EQ constraint from the glass faces to the CL of the glass RP. Can you upload the family?
