    Moving the object vertically

    Hi everyone in this forum, I used to when i want to move component vertically that i have to go to View cube set it to front and move from there vertically.
    i tried other option that i thought it is quicker is to set workplane to the component so i can move directly from 3d vertically, the problem is that even with this case with clicking shift i can not move except horizontally.
    Any idea how i can move the component from 3d view verticallly instead of just horizontally?
    Thanks in advance

    Sometimes I've gotten it to work in an elevation rather than 3D - have you tried that?

      that what i am actually do using viewcube to switch between 3d and elevation. I thought there is a method to work on it directly from 3d without need to switch to another view. I hope there is a method because switching many times is a little tedious and sometimes i see to make only 2 tile views plan and 3d for eye comfort display which why i hope to work on 3d to save time switching between views back and forth.

        Try using the Move command, and check Disjoin and uncheck Constrain.

            That's actually not what you're doing when you click the front/back/left/front on the view cube. He is saying in an actual elevation view, not a 3d view set to an elevation. A lot of times doing this from an elevation/section view will allow you move the object.

            Now, if the object is work plane based then sometimes even this will not allow you to move the object. In this case it looks like your object is on a work plane which should allow you to move the object vertically, so I'm guessing this may be a constraint that is happening in the family or a constraint that has happened after you placed the object in the model. Can you control the height using an offset or height parameter in the family itself?

                I think the problem is that you've used an in place family. Create an actual face based family. Then, you can move it anywhere you want on that face.

                  Yes as you said Dan Zatto, it is actually build in place to see how it will fit the surrounding can i copy it into face based family after i did that ?
                  Do you recommend this workflow? i did not tried to follow this workflow as you can copy from in-place family into another family i want to see if this is recommended or shall i do it from beginning again ?

                    It looks like a simple sweep, so I'd just do it again. Set up a few parameters so you can easily change the size for different window sizes. A simple height and width parameter should do it.

                    There's a thread on here somewhere that has a link on how to change an in place family to a family, but I can't find it.

                    Those windows look really good, by the way. Are they parametric, or just one size?
