How do I draw Bermuda shutters?

I have tried many convoluted ways but it doesn't work.

I have tried drawing a mass and applying a wall but,m I couldn't edit the profile of the wall. 

I drew a regular wall and edited the profile to look like a shutter but, I couldn't rotate the wall to pop out like a bermuda shutter.

Please help.  I attached 2 photos.  One of my screwed up model and the other of what a bermuda shutter should look like.  I also already looked in the download menu and didn't find one already done.  If you can help me figure out how to do it I will upload the shutters to the library.

Thanks!

I'm not sure why you would use a wall to draw a shutter.

Create a new family, probably generic.  Use a reference line to create an angle parameter.  Use extrusions to create the frame.  Use an extrusion to create a louvre and constrain it to the frame.  Array the louvre and if required, give it a parameter for number of louvres or spacing.  Give the components material parameters.  Load it into your project.

As I said, I tried many convoluted things trying to make it happen... thanks for the condescending line before your helpful reply.

in addition to what time said you might try a wall hosted family.  might give you some different functionality you may or may not like.  also i think tim was mostly just wondering if there was a specific reason you might want to be making these out of walls.

I am trying to do the same thing.  Except I was hoping to take the shutters that I already have and rotate it for the Bermuda style, but of course that would be way to obvious and easy so naturally it does not work.  So before I continue I was just curious what you ended up doing.

How do you get the extrusion to lock to the reference plane and follow the angle?  Even if you rotate the extrusion it removes the constraints.  Please help I guess at this point my main problem is how do you get an extrusion to rotate without breaking all the parameters or for that matter a family to rotate in an elevation view.

 

Thank you,

I got it to rotate in the family after building it and loaded it into the project.  However I still don't understand how you can get the extrusions in the family to follow a rotating refernce plane.

Lunch is right, use "Reference LINE" not "Ref. Plane", the Ref. Lines have two Work Planes which you can select in what work plane you want to work, to "Host" the family.... then just Align the object to the ref. line and lock the padlocks....
