I'm trying to customize a grid head, but it seems that the grid head doesnt connect with the grid line.  (see fig 1)

if i adjust the family, and move the grid head up/down from the centrepoint, (fig 2) and then load into project..

the grid heads move right out of place.. on both axis. Cryingfig 3)

I know the original post was over a year ago - but I was searching for a solution to the same problem.  After coming up with very little information I decided to try harder at figuring this out.  Hopefully you found a solution prior to this, but if not - here's what I came up with...

 

In your grid head family draw the irregular shape or any shape other than a circle you desire, add the label, then draw a circle encompassing your non-circular shape.  Make this an invisible line and you're good to go.  The gridline in your project will now cut to your irregular shaped grid head.  See attached pic...

 

Hope this helps!

Hey all!

 

I wanted to submit a follow-up to my original response post.  As the above works like a charm in plan view - it doesn't work the same way in a section view.  I have attached pics as well as the family file in hopes someone with more knowledge can help me out!  I would be interested in either knowing why a section view would alter the rotation of the text in the family file...or maybe there is something else I am missing.

 

Thanks!
