    Familien im Projekt drehen

    vielleicht kann mir jemand helfen?
    ich habe ein Familienbauteil (allgemeines Modell) ins Projekt (Grundriss, Ebene 0) geladen. Beim Versuch dieses Bauteil in der Ansicht Süd zu drehen kommt die Meldung: "Elemente können nicht in diese Position gedreht werden".
    Meine Frage: mache ich da etwas falsch oder geht das nicht?
    Vielen Dank im Voraus

    Willkommen im Forum. Die meisten Leute hier sprechen Englisch. Ich werde jetzt Google Translate verwenden, da mein Deutsch begrenzt ist.Der Gastgeber für die Familie ist höchstwahrscheinlich das Problem. Können Sie die Familie hochladen oder uns sagen, um welche es sich handelt?

    Welcome to the forum. Most of the people here use English. I will use google translate for now since my German is limited.


    The host for the family is most likely the problem. Can you upload the family or tell us which one it is?

    In the Generic Models template, under "Family Category and Parameters", there is an "Always vertical" family parameter that is checked by default. This will only allow it be rotated in plan.

    If you are trying to rotate the family in an elevation or section view, unchecking this box and reloading the family should allow it.

    Thank you for the Answer, I unchecked that box - but its still not rotateable?

    As far as I now this won't be possible even if you uncheck this box. This because a standard Generic Model needs a host (Level) to be placed on.
    Yes you can change after placement the host, but you can only select other levels, no workplanes nor gridlines.
    If you wan't to turn an generic model in a section you need to use a face-based family, place this on a face or workplane, and turn that face or workplane aftwerwards. The object will follow accordingly

    Yes. Un-hosted really means level hosted. WPB allows both Reference Planes and Levels (provided they're parallel to each other). You can place on a workplane and then rotate the workplane if it's WPB but rotating freely in 3D space without rotating the host isn't something Revit does,

    Interesting. I've never used hosted (face, floor, roof, etc) GMs. Always use WPB. I didn't realize that a generic GM would be automatically hosted by a level. Learn something new every day
