Hi There, anyone can rotate a car in section/elevation? I've tried to edit the family and uncheck 'always vertical' but still not working.  I am trying to put it on a ramp, it works on a floor and pick host but not on a ramp. Thanks in advance!

Not all families are built equally.  Obviously if this is a floor hosted family, then you will probably need a floor instead of a ramp.

 

Most cars are just imports from sketchup into a family.  If you can't find a family that works, you could build your own.  If the family you have is a CAD import, you could add a rotating reference line in the family and align-lock the import to that <<I Think.

Edit that (CAR) family, goto "Family category and parameters", turn ON "Work-plane Based", load into your project, select the car and on Ribbon you will see "Pick New", select "Face" and now in a 3D view select the face of that RAMP, OR pick "Edit Work Plane" and select "Pick a new host" and select the face of the ramp.

Hi is there a way to rotate it without hosting it? I ask because my topography is in a revit link and it wont let me host the vehicle onto a link.
