Hi there! I know there is a way to create line based families, but instead of a line is it possible to create them based on an arc? The thought came to me when I was fiddling around with some insulation detail component which is created by specifying only it's radius. And then it creates this circle of insulation. But it is a complere circle and it is not possible to split it, so what if I only want an arc of the insulation? If anyone has any tips and tricks on how to solve this, please throw them in. I've attached the family I have so you're welcome to try and tweak it.

Hi dingohot,

Great family! It's nearly 2017 and there's still no curved insulation option. I looked on your website link for the download but couldn't find it. Would you mind helping me locate it please?

Thanks
