    Rebar cover for nested column

    Guess some intro is key for this one:

    The task is to make precast column.
    I ended up nesting str.column, str.footing in host family (str.column). Gave some family type parameters in order to swap columns as needed in project. Works well.... but now that it came time to put in some reinforcements I cant change the cover values.

    Need some help on this one.
    Here is a short screencast to illustrate:

    Thx guys
    Easy things are not worth the effort

    I am having similar problem. Have you found the solution for the what you described?
    Do you know how to add rebar cover definition withing family editor environment? I'd appreciate some tips. :-)

      That was a long time ago my friend.

      Also didn't manage how to change it. It was more of a curiosity how to do it, then a legitimate task, and so I moved on quickly...

        Structure tab > Reinforcement panel > click Cover button
        Tab select a nested element (only shared families can be selected)
        Options Bar > Cover Settings > set the desired cover.
