I have a sunscreen with "L" shaped blades.  I created a family that is fully parametric.  The blades were created with an extrusion and associated sizing and angle.  I loaded it into the suncreen and created an array.  The array will change with the size of the screen and you can choose how many blades to have.  The designer now wants the sunscreens to meet at the corners.  Most corners are 45 degrees - 2 of them are not, so i cannot even hard code this (we will most likely never use this again).  I can angle the support and the outriggers just fine.  I will need some fine tuning so they be parametric - but at this stage hard coded sizes are fine by me.  The issue is that i need to get the ends of the blades to angle as well.  I tried a sweep but that didnt work.  I was thinking of a blend but assume it has to be in the original component.  Take a look - any help would be awesome and as always greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

You can achieve this by using a void extrusion in the blade family.  This can also be parametric - it works well if you lock the void to a reference line with an angle parameter.
