    making 2d sofa array parametric ?!

    Hi everyone, i have just tried to made a sofa 2d that is parametric that when you enter value of length it become have number of 2 or 3 seats equalled and centered
    can anyone tell me how because it seems i can not make this division seats (number of seats centered)

    THANKS

    The general idea when doing an array like this is to have a beginning and an end. This will allow equality between the number of elements in the array.

    There will be an "Actual Number" parameter which is the number of pads you want + 1 controling the array.

    See attached.

    Because you are using a 2D linework element I can't really hide the start/end lines. Will the effect still work if the pad separation lines don't continue all of the way to the end of the sofa?

      Thanks Andrew for your reply,just want to mention that there is failure(remove constraints) when trying to changing length or number if pads which is the main parameters i need.

        Finally i did it, it is really enjoyable in the end to create this custom 2d family
        The solution for this case is to use multiple nested family even if it is 2D
        the family is in the attachment

          You don't need to use nested families.

          I forgot to actually finish the family I attached. It is now properly constrained. Here it is without needing nested linework.

          Another thing to note: Even if you are just using 2D linework, you should still be using reference planes. Just like it's not a good idea to dimension to geometry, you also should not dimension to linework.
