I'm using revit 2009 and I want to be able to array a face based family around a curved face. When I array it at the moment it does not stay attached to the curved face, it arrays out in a straight line. I guess the array function doesn't allow you to measure around a curve?

"I guess the array function doesn't allow you to measure around a curve?" isn't true, you also had "Polar Array", do you try it???

The 'polar array' would just array around a central axis? I require a tool that allows me to array an iten along an irregular curve

If it's an irregular curve wouldn't that mean it's not really an array, but just copies?

or do you mean array around a sphere?

I would like it to be an array, however the tool apparently doesn't exist. It's an irregularily shaped arch, and I wanted to array slats along the top face of the element

Hi again, "I would like it to be an array, however the tool apparently doesn't exist" - It's not True, the tool Exist but can't do What do you want like you want (in CAD you can used a Divide or Measure with block and its done) but in Revit we don't have this "Divide" or "Measure" command, there are "Here" in this site some thread with this issue but i don't remember "when" and the name of it...

How would you modify a family from face-based or hosted to one that is not?
