    Rotating Family in Section View


    I created a generic angle iron family. Then loaded it into my project and noticed I can't rotate it if I am in a front section view. Any quick fixes?

    Hi there! I'm afraid you can't rotate a level restricted family. It must always maintain the horizontality of its level of reference.

    You still have two options. They are not 'quick', but they can fix it if you are in the need:

    - You can edit the family to give the rotation you want. if this is a singular case.

    - If you want to rotate it at will when placed in the project, you can nest your family in another family, by creating a reference line in the new family and selecting one of its reference planes as the nested family's work plane, and parametrize that line's rotation.
