Hello,

I am having trouble creating turning viens for a rectangular elbow. I have tried editing the family and just adding annotation lines but after i load it into my project the viens look sloppy. Or when i change the Width and Height of the elbow in the project the viens dont adapt to the size. Instead the lines do connect to the corners or the ticks look sloppy.

Would anyone have a step-by-step guide on how to add turning viens when editing a family for a retangular elbow?

I dont mind if the guide is even long, I just want to get the job done correctly.

Thanks!

This would be created just like a louver.   The old 2010 "families guide' that can be downloaded from the autodesk site shows how to nest a louver type family into another family.

Is there a reason you're creating your own instead of using the out of the box version? The OOTB Rectangular Elbow Mitered - Single Thickness Vanes.rfa is a decent example to follow if you're trying to make something custom. It's pretty minimal in the number of parameters needed to make it flex properly, and uses an array of a nested family with model lines, and some simple formulas. Lots of good stuff to learn from in this family. I use this as our default elbow with an instance parameter to either show vanes or not.
