    Fixing a broken model

    What procedure do you use to track down and fix errors flexing a model? In the attached family, I get multiple errors when changing Unit Size to 165, all other sizes flex correctly. I did not create this model and I know it would be better if the creator used a family type parameter, but I am stumped on how to approach this situation.

    Has something to do with the base plates....quite a few extrusions were not aligned and locked to the reference planes....

    Might suggest building them as a separate family and nest the L brackets...

        Correct....When I was back in the 3D view I went to the Manage Tab and under the Inquiry Panel there is a Select by ID

          Good tip, thank you. I find it odd the issue only happens with Unit Size 165.

          Is the next step to start unlocking everything?

            Personally I would try modeling the L brackets on their own and nesting them....

            Also instead of having the hole in the extrusion I would use a void...that may be the issue there...

            Sometimes unlocking everything and relocking them seems to do the trick too...

            Yeah, your right....164 works and 166 works... :/

              Something is wrong with your BF parameter.....when you select 165 its making BF = TA...thus your hole in the bracket is interrupting the extrusion and it breaks

                You are right on the money. I remove the hole from the sketch and it flexes fine. Thanks for the tips and have some rep I am impressed with how fast you found the issue, are you related to Sherlock Holmes?
