    edit elevation constraint?

    I have a sink that it is impossible to move vertically. When I select it, in its properties there are 2 constraints: Host: not ascociated and Elevation:900.0
    When I click edit type, there is no option to change the elevation height. I have tried to edit the family, but when I open it, the sink actually sits on a large extrusion that has a random height. I couldn't see anywhere any sign of the Elevation:900 constraint, but I am not very familiar with family editing anyway.
    Anyone can help? All I want is to have my sinks 50mm lower, at elevation: 850.

    How about uploading it so we can take a peek?

      Select the extrusion and look at the properties. Has the 900 value been set directly as the extrusion end?

          No I see not much to edit in the extrusion properties. Here is the family file https://www.dropbox.com/sh/q42svzjr9...UmTHI0Aaa?dl=0

              Your family is, indeed Hosted.
              When you Edit the family, click on the "Family and Category Parameters" icon (the one with the yellow folder)
              Scroll down to the bottom of the "Family Parameters" window, and you'll see the its listed as Host: Face.
              So, what that tells me is that the sink is hosted to (probably) the top face of the cabinet.
              Back in the Project, you should be able to pick the sink, and then click on "Pick new Host". Find a countertop or something at 850mm & you should be good to go.
