    Geometry in family file not showing above a certain elevation

    I have an unhosted family for a smoke detector. One of my parameters is MountingHeight. If I make the mounting height anything above 7' 10", the geometry is no longer visible in the plan view of the family. The same thing happens if I load it into a project first. I have tried it with other families and am having the same issue. I have checked the visibility parameters and can't seem to figure it out.

    Change the View Range in your family or project.

    I did, that isn't the issue. I have hosted families at that elevation that show up fine.

    Ah! I got it! The view range in the project was fine but it was the family view range that was off. Thanks!
