    Air terminal family

    Hi all!

    I am trying to make grills inside air terminal family with the model line. Problem is when I make grills with array function they can't be locked so they enlarge or become smaller when the family enlarges. If the model line is independent I can easily hook it up for reference planes and works perfectly (see Picture1.jpg)

    When I array that model line it stop's having connection with reference planes and is disasocciated (see Picture2.jpg). Then with align function I tried locking it to reference planes and it worked on one side (see Picture 3.jpg) but on the other side it simply doesn't work.

    Is there any way to lock model line to reference plane when using array function?!

    Best regards, Branimir

    It can be done pretty easily by nesting another family in it with the lines, then constraining and arraying the nested family.

    Create family with nothing but a line - add length param to line
    Nest line family into terminal
    Constrain line family & map parameters
    Array as needed
