I'm trying to create an arc driven by adaptive points. I've created several versions of these successfully, but now I'm encountering some flaky behavior: Sometimes while flexing the adaptive points to check the geometry, the arc flips to other side of it's host reference unpredictably. Um, what? What relationships would cause this glitch to occur?

Could it be a direction problem?  The direction picked or the direction of the element you may be using to locate this?

I tried redrawing it over and over again and it always does that. I ended up deleting just about everything and then drawing it over again. I got it to work, but I'm not sure what the issue was. You wouldn't think the direction would affect it changing planes! I don't know...the conceptual massing, adaptive component environment is very opaque as it is. There really needs to be an outliner for keeping track of hosted geometry because it creates havoc if not done exactly right. Oy vey. I still have faith, but I don't think these types of problems helps me convince anyone to use Revit more. I do have a follow up question: While I did get this to work (somehow) the next issue is trying to parameterize offsets of the arc. All the parameters are instance based since I'm using a host family to eventually drive the form, but when I create an offset parameter for the arc based on a formula Revit does not allow it saying the parameter cannot be changed because it's defined by a formula. Any reason why the rules are being breached here that you know of?
