Hi guys,

Just wondering if i can pick your brains on the following problem i'm struggling to resolve.

I'm building a family (this one is very basic) and trying to use an angular parameter to set the angle at which the outlet occurs.  I've followed examples i have seen on the net during searches (using nested families etc) to find a solution but nothing seems to work.  Any chance one of you can shed some light on where i am going wrong?

when i try and 'flex' the family to see if the outlet moves with a given angle i get an error message saying 'constraints are not satisfied' and tries to move the nested family rather than rotate it.

Any help would be gratefully received.

Adam

Is the family you want to rotate set to "always vertical?

Hi WWHub

Yes it is set to 'always vertical', is that a possible cause for it not flexing as it should?

 

Hi Cketros

Thanks, i'll have a look at how you've done that, i swear i couldnt get it to work within the nested family.

 

Thanks guys for your promt replies.
