Hi!

I'm making a beam family from a existing one, got the idea to just make new profiles sweeping profiles to save a lot of time.But unfortunately it diden`t go that well, and I have no clue what's making it, anybody have the time to check my family and help me whit the error? Got the existing and the new one attached, as file. I don't know if its the profile or the references in the family its self that is bad.

i chechked your file.. and found out what is wrong..

when u make sweep with a profile that improted from another family, you have to link parameters of profile family to parameters of sweep family.

find the profile family you used in project browser, and select with right click, then select type properties..

then you can see type proterties window of the profile family,

in there click small buttons right of parameters, and select parameters of sweep family you want to sync...

alighnment constration is not nessesary.. that dosen't work for imported profiles just except when fix the location of whole profile family.
