    Sketch warning

    The extrusion can have a 0" length Bottom Width (essentially making the extrusion 3 sided) and since Rervit wont allow a 0" length sketch line, I made a "minimum" parameter. My solution is to make a very short line when the user inputs 0", but I get this warning that I am trying to eliminate.

    After more testing, the warning that is displayed when flexing parameters inside the family does not appear when changing the value inside a project, so I guess it's a non-issue. The moral to the story is not all warnings are evil.

      Instead of faking the triangle as you show, if you put a "calculation" parameter in, with the correct formula you can achieve a "real" 4 pointer triangle, if that makes sense!
      Images make it clearer:

        NICE solution Alex! Another way to achieve it, would be to keep the solid squared/rectangular and then cut it with a void (No formulas needed).

            I thought I would post the solution I used. I ended up using Alex's method because it kept the family a bit cleaner (no offense Klaus). The only change I made was to use the existing top ref plane rather than create another for the bottom of the panel. The 2 images show what happens when the bottom width is 0" and 2". Thx again and enjoy some rep!
