    Profile base point

    Is there a correct way to draw a profile family relative to the x,y axis? I know where it is drawn will change how it applies to the host but I'm not sure if there is a 'correct' way or if it is a matter of draw as needed.

    I tend to use quadrant I or IV, depending on where it needs to be in relation to the origins. For II and III, you can flip the profile in it's properties in the project.

      Always quadrant x,y. Just so I know how to place it when I ever reuse the profile.

        Let me rephrase. I agree with Martijn, unless the profile needs to be in quad. IV (x, -y). Like the profile for a slab edge, for example.

          Let me rephrase too, I agree with Dan if you're talking about a profile that's always placedbelow the referencing element.
