    What is the best way to make this lug chain.
    Want to be able to change lug spacing and lug quantity to drive it.

    What is the end goal for this? Does the family actually need this level of control visibly, rather than data driven?

    End result is to be able to change the length of my lug table based on lug count and spacing. some math.
    my problem is getting a family of the lug chain itself that has the lugs patterned all the way around like i want.
    tried adaptive and pattern families but i can not place them in my main generic family.
    See uploaded pic of lug table and lug chain(static).

    In generic families it´s not possible to repeat an element along a path that contains straight lines and curves, going up and down like that, with count and spacing controlled by parameters. That repetition needs to be done in an adaptive template.
