    Angle tip

    Hello.
    Some of You Folks had a problem with angled dimensions where 90, 180, 270 angle made some errors.
    I replaced angle by X/Y coordinate

    90, 180, 270, 360 angle will not harm You ever
    Cheers!

    I jumped in hastily, suspicious this wouldn't work with minus angle values... so just built my own.... and lo it works - so snark retracted!

    mind; it does (or can) break when the trig.'d controllers (my ox and oy) are forced into minus... so you might want to make offset a factor of Length

      I work as a Revit family creator and everytime I had family where was some kind of rotation I wondered how to handle it, and some time ago I found solution for this problem
      Cheers!
      Edit: I saw Your previous post. you can put any value That's why I used offset to solve negatives

          Yep, You're right It can be modified whatever You like, I just post how to prevent that errors by replacing angles to X/Y coordinates.
          I use variations of this solution depends on what I need to have

                    hello
                    very intersting post (i had problems last week)
                    how would you create your family? for example i have 7 item to manage with radius would you multiplicate parameters(to drive the references lines) in the final family or to put these parameters in nested family in order in the final family there's only the radius ?
                    it will make parameters in the final(hosted?) family clearer?
                    Phil
                    PS : apologises, i think i'm invertig hosted and nested!! :/
