I asked for this in the wishlist but wondered if anyone has any idea on how to actually create a 2D parametic detail family for clothes hangers. I tried to create a pattern with Hatch22 but the diagonal lines weren't working - I was going to make a family similar to the gyp board detail component. I think it needs to operate similarly to insulation but that is buried in Revit and I am not digging around to find it and open it. Anyway, I want the family to add hanger lines as the family is lengthened and prefer it not to be block based so that it will work well for any sized closet, not just those that are a function of the block (like if the it was a 1' block and the closet is 2.5' I don't want to only be able to have 2 blocks of hangers, I want to fill all of the 2.5'.) I've attached an image of what I'm trying to do - I need the orange lines in the family, not the dashed tan lines.

If you are looking for a 2D family, you may use Line Based template to create your own family.

I've created a line based family that allows me to manually indicate the number of hanger groups it arrays. This is only partially helpful as I'd like to be able to lengthen the family and the groups automatically fill the distance. And even better if a partial piece of the group could be used to fill the distance.

Try to create a nested family. First to create a 2D family with three or four hangers, then insert it into a line-based family with array parameters to control the distances at each end.

See the following post, hope that can help.

My suggestion would be to create a repeating detail component for that.
