    Please advise me

    I would have to create an inclined UC column : base size to be 356x368x129 , top 356x400x129 and 70 Degree slope as shown in attached.

    I created it with " Model-in-place : mass".

    Later, My Engineer asked me to change the size,
    so i'm wondering if I could create a family with parameters ??? But i don't know how to do it.

    Please advise me

    Masses should not be used to create 'real' geometry. You can create angled columns using structural columns and then you can just change the defined profile.

      You should create a new family using the structural category. In the family, I would use the swept blend tool, cause you have different profiles, top and bottom.. Parameters can be added to the top and bottom profile, thus making it easy to control..

        Think that maybe you are looking for "Slanted Column".... See attached.

          And... almost forgot... You can pick the column upon creation, and choose "horizontal" for the Base- and Top Cut Style...

            But will "standard" columns accommodate the need for different top and bottom profiles, as stated in the OP?

              Nope... missed that part :hide:

              Would like to know where and why to get such a column though...

                  They won't but looking at the dimensions, I'm guessing this is a typo... Not worth the hassle and costs to have a change in size of no more then 32mm...

                  But you can create a "regular" column with different top and bottom profiles, and still use the Slanted Column method.

                    It's Architect's need for slanting and My Engineer's design requirement for two different Top & Bottom sizes.

                    It's actually a Carpark Shelter .

                    The design is as attached

                    I also got headache for that ...

                    Please kindly help me.
