I am attempting to set up a sloped floor for an auditorium space in my project.  Presently I have had to make a different floor for each of the chair heights.  This seems incredibly inefficient.  SO instead I have now created the sloped floor (more specifically, I created a roof by extrusion, but it should theoretically work the same for my purposes)  

 

Now the problem I am having is that I cannot find the "attach" option for the chairs so I can assign them to floor object.

 

I've included a screenshot, I need the floating chairs the be aligned vertically with the sloped floor beneath them.

 

Thanks in advance.

Take your chair family, open it up, go to the family categories and parameters, check the "work plane" based box, save family, load into your project.

 

The family will now want to host itself to the faces of your floor.

 

Tip: Go to 3D view and place a chair on each riser.  Then switch to floor plan to position, copy/array.

 

Alternate: Create new face based family and next the chair family into it.  Use similar to above in project.

Ok, that worked.  Thank you, but now it's saying "Can't rotate element into this position" when I try to turn the cahir to face the front of the auditorium. 

 

I guess I could edit the family to face the correct direction, but I would prefer it if there were some other method.  Any thoughts?

Can you use the space bar to rotate the chair prior to placement?
