Afternoon everyone.. I've been getting this error quite often lately.. Let's say for example, that I create a cylinder from a Solid Form Extrusion. Afterwards, I would like to "parameterize" its radius, so I add a radius dim and then I add a new label, call it "radius" and then confirm it. Only after that, when I try to edit my radius length under Family Types, it gives me the "Constraints are not satisfied" error and doesn't change my radius' length... What am I missing?

Sounds like something else is causing the problem. The cylinder is the lone solid in the family? Did you "lock" anything else?

this may not be kosher, but i found a trick on revit's own round column family, where there is a symbolic arc, that is locked to reference planes. when creating the round element, you lock it to the symbolic arc. then all you do is put parameter dimensions on the reference planes. i have had little success in making radius parameters work - is there a proper way?

Try to dimension and label the dimension before you finish the solid extrusion. Sometimes when I get that alot I try to dimensions in side the solid and it seems to work alot better.
