    I'll be sleeping at the time, after hardwork day, but I will really check it in archives next day.

    Would it be possible to look at parametric angles in families and use of parametric detail components within families at some stage? I have been trying to build a bay window family with a detail component to draw in the wall junction in detail in fine and coarse mode, but have found it impossible to use a reporting angle from the main family to drive the detail component to fit the angled junction as the bay window family flexes, use of angles always seems to reult in an overconstrained family if enough constraints are placed to adjust angle and position.. I have resorted to doing the math to set up orthogonal reference planes, but this becomes horrendously complex to do more than a single detail component region fill for the coarse mode, and I would hope that reference lines and reporting angles could be used to drive a more complex detail component that models the angled wall, cavity, plaster, and cavity closer etc. I assume it is not a bug in the angle constraint mechanism and that i just havent got my head round using it properly, but am starting to wonder!

    Looking forward to your live session, and hope you can consider the issue of using reporting angles to drive embedded detail components in families either in this or a future session.

    Thanks
    Robin

    I'll put reporting parameters in my mind map, but it probably won't be covered till later in the series. We need to build up to fun stuff like that!

    Today's session is going to be very intro. Some Family Planning, what information the templates contain, maybe get in to cuttable families, etc, etc. Please keep making suggestions thought because I am adding it to my session tree.

    Ok, looking forward to the session.

    Another issue though:
    If a sweep form is used in a family, is it possible to still control the loaded profile parametrically from the family, or does it become locked into its form at the time the sweep is made?

    Thanks
    Robin

    Robin,

    the profile is still controlled parametrically through the family
    You just need to recreate the parameter types in the family and equal the profile parameters to the relavent familly parameters

    Mmm thanks carl great session can we see next time how this security devices modelled with its field of view ? that i think by refrence line. the new things to me i learned is cuttable family and non cuttable family thanks.

    I will need to double check that question, Robin, because if I recall correctly profile parameters do not pass through to host families; but I may be confusing that with things like Wall Sweeps which are system family sweeps inside of a project.

    Typically, you can pass parameter information through to host families fairly easily. I will go over that in the shared ad nested components sessions.

    Ahmed, I added your request to my session tree. I will continue the next session using the Area of View model as an example.
