Hello, so I have currnetly made a nested family for a basketball system and have a problem when i flex my elevation. As you can see my bracing that the Red arrow is pointing to is not flexing properly.. However when I edit the family its in, I have it constrained and it flexes no problem. So what could be the solution to this problem?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I tried sending the file but it exceeds the maximum file size to post on the forum.. Is there another place I could post it or send it for you to look over?
Without the file to troubleshoot, it is going to be difficult to offer suggestions.
You can check out Performance Sports Systems 3207 (Ceiling-Hung, Front-Fold, Front-Braced Basketball Backstop).
I've received you file via email. In order to make that portion of the Family obey the "flex", I simply removed the constraint depicted in the image below.
I would recommend heeding or at least considering Alfredo's advice that he gave in from your other thread; the diagonal Reference Planes appear to be creating some instability.
"When you deal with diagonals that need to be constrained, there are two good choices: reference lines constrained at the start ponts, or diagonals with their endpoints constrained to horizontal and vertical planes..
Using diagonal reference planes is a bad choice. They require too many constraints to stay in place, and will, most likely, break anyway, producing those errors that you are seeing. I think that is causing you problems in that family."
That's crazy, I can't believe you found the problem! That was such a tease that it was working no problem in the single family but not in the nested. Thanks Corey, you've helped me out a lot!!
