I would like to create a parametric filled region that fills the door panel in plan view.
I've started by using the Metric Detail Item.rft file, and created the filled region/parameters needed.
I then loaded this into my door family, but now need to "Align/Lock" it to the door panel, so that it flexes when resized.
I can only lock one edge, what am I doing wrong?
The clue in all these resides in the parameters of the nested family . When you make parameters in Detail Item Family , make them Instance Parameters.
Then load the Detail Item Family in Door Family where you have to build Reference Planes with parameters. Use the arrows from the nested family to attach and lock to this Reference Planes and flex the parameters. It will work.
For a better understanding, look in my recording posted on Autodesk Chronicle:
