    Rotation Error

    Hello evryone,

    I'm having troubles with the rotation of a simple extrusion. ( In a Metric Generic Model )

    I made this extrusion with a different centerpoint where it is supposed to rotate. and added here a reference line to make the rotation work -> see image 1
    After that I Loaded this family ( Metric Genreric Model ) in another Family ( Also Metric Generic ) .
    Here i added the Parametric parameter to make a instance of that rotation. -> image 2

    The rotation works perfectly , as demonstration i setted a rotation on 90°, 10° and 50°.
    But as soon as i put the angle on 0° or 180°, the model isn't centered anymore and rotates however it wants .. -> Image 5

    Any suggestions ?

    Thank you in advance !

    Rotation is tricky. Try looking here:

    Seems like nesting the family for each movement did the trick..
