I am working on a glass wall family model component and need help figuring out how to add a parameter to the parts that are circled.  The part in real life swivels up to 8 degrees.  I know I need to use the angle dimension but that is all I can figure so far. I have never done angle parameters before. Any help would be appreciated.

Update: I added the angle parameter with a reference line and I am able to get the round circle (which is the pole) to move with the parameter.  The other parts have a different reference plane so the way I got the pole to move doesn't work with these.  I will keep plugging away. Smile

Found this video which makes sense but not sure how to apply to my situation as my extrusions are different and opposite work planes.  Keep plugging away.

The best way to do this would be to create a separate family of just the parts you want to rotate and then load it into the host family and host the family to the planes of the reference line. Then you can add an angle parameter to the reference line to change its rotation.

marmiketin1, thanks that works perfect except now I am having trouble doing the parameters. I need for the pole to be able to shut off and on for each side on each panel.  Keep plugging away! Smile
