    Couple of Family issues: Flexing Sweep Angle and Sizing in Project.

    I am creating a pipe elbow family.

    All seems to be going well with the parameters and lookup table until I try to change the angle. When I changed the FitAng value to 45, that's when I get the constraints not satisfied warning.

    Thoughts on that?

    The second issue is that when I put the elbow into a project as a 90 degree (the angle that works), it works fine as a draw pipe changing sizes and everything. However, when I select pipes and fittings, and then change sizes, I get a warning about an elbow not being present. ...then it changes as it should. (attached picture of the warning)

    Thanks!

    You can open a family from a default library and see how it works if you want to create it on your own.
