So Im using this hand sink.

it looks good in the family editor, but when you host it to a wall in my project, it embeds into it. and changes shape slightly. 

see pic.

how do I fix this?! why does this happen. One sink is going to make me spend 2 hours trying to fix it...

I opened your model file.  FYI its saved in a 2019 "Pre Release" format... When i saved back - it's now the new 2019 format.  

so.  here's what i did.  I dragged your wall.  half the stuff in the family was using it as a reference plane and half stayed put.  Since there are 0 parameters set up, I dissociated all the parts with their work planes.  If things were parametric you don't do this - mainly because you lock your planes and set it up smart.  this family was not done that way.

 

My steps:

  • Disassociate all parts from their work planes (you can check it by dragging the wall in the family when no parts move)
  • Group all the model items in the family
  • Add a reference line (not plane) at the back of the sink inside the group
  • Unpin all reference planes
  • Deleted unnecessary refence planes (for tidiness)
  • Lock the two required reference planes (you'll know because you can not delete them) to the face of the wall.
  • Lock the reference line you added in the group to the face of the reference planes

Bam, it works.

I used to think that the reference planes always drove insertion points (when marked origin) - but when it's wall mounted - it's the face of wall.  and when I lock my reference planes to face of wall, it is always flush.
