I'm trying to make an adaptive component that I can place using Dynamo.

It's a column bracket for inclined columns, where the angle of the bracket changes from column to column. I've made it as a two-point adaptive component and I can get it to place it. That's not the issue. The problem is the bottom plate of the bracket, which is supposed to be horisontal every time. When I place it, it's putting an angle on this as well (grey bracket). The purple brackets seen in the image is a reference model, which is an imported .sat file with all the brackets in it. I want to make seperate Revit families instead.

The bottom plate is a nested generic family, which I've tried to align (and lock) to the horisontal plane of the adaptive point 1. But Revit doesn't care.

I've made it work by modeling the plate as an extrusion in the same plane of the adaptive point 1. But it's a pain to work with afterwards, when you want to make holes etc.

How do I keep this plate horisontal using a nested family?


Hope someone can help.

It's hard to say without understanding how you're instantiating the adaptive component in your graph. Is it using two points every time to place the component or one? In theory, if your columns are coming from an origin point in line of the angle vector that is always on the same plane, then placing your AC between those points should give you more what you want. But that also begs the question of how the AC behaves on it's own.
