Hi,

 

I have a corner joint which is attached to the end of a glass panel in a curatin wall panel.  How do i lock the angled extrusion so its size stays the same when loaded into the project?  currently when i load it in...it becomes far bigger than i want it.

 

Please help!

Edit the profile shape, then align it to the reference lines and lock them.

Yes, you draw the refrence line the way it suppose to be. then you edit the profile shape and you align the shape to the reference, once you align, a lock image shows on the center of the element usually, click it to lock the shape to the reference. close you shape and voila!

i think it will be much easier to get answers if your family attached.

the profiles of the extrusion has no constraint with ref planes.. just make constraint.

and if i were you, i'd use one sweep void instead..not two extrusion.

 

by the way.. is this detail really nessasary???

How would i make the constraint with the angled ref line?  Also i could make it a simple triangle, but thought id make it look as close as the real product.  Can i be cheeky and ask you to add the constraints for me?  as i know i will struggle.  if you can...that would be much appreciated...

whe you want to make angle constraintion, don't use ref plane, use ref line instead..

ref planes have no center point for angle, but ref lines can have it.

try with ref line.

i'd like to fix it but this family is too complicated for someone not created this to handle..
