I want to make this model line group (though it doesnt need to be a group per se) to stick to the reference plane its centered on (see image) I tried the align tool, and get a lock, but when the plane moves, I have to remove the constraints. anyones tips would be appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance

Michael

You could try making the model line group as a generic model family (or even a generic annotation, unless you need to see the lines in 3D views as well) and nest the family into your host family. Then you'll be able to align and lock it to the centerline in the host family.

You don't *have* to make a separate family, though I think that would be a good solution to your problem. There are various ways of doing things in Revit. you could also draw ref planes for each line, dimension them, and lock your model lines to them. I don't use model groups so I'm not sure how well they work for what you are trying to do, but apparently they don't.
