    Custom Structural Truss not working Project

    Hi All,

    I've been trying to set up a truss family that automatically creates panels of a user nominated width, but updates with the instance truss length.

    I can flex it fine in the family editor, but I get an error that revit can't layout members when creating an instance in a project.

    Here's the family file (2014). Can anyone spot any issues with the parameter assignment to dimensions or array duplications?

    Thanks in advance,

    Jon
