I'm trying to make a storefront window panel family with a built in louvered awning that will adjust to the size of the panel, but will also maintain family editing commands such as depth of awning, # of louvres etc. I'm using a nested family for my louvres. I've managed to get the side supports to link to the Right/Left of the panel dynamically, but I can't seem to figure out how to specify a dynamic value for the length of the louvres(louvres run parallel to Storefront) so that they adjust to the width of the curtain grid in the project. Does anyone have any ideas?

If I'm reading correctly, you should be able to attach the sides of the nested louvre family to the left/right extents of where ever you want them to go. So long as those extens flex correctly, your louvres should as well. I'm guessing you used this tutorial ( to get the nested louvres. If not, browse it real quick, it shows how to attach the louvres to flex dynamically with the family. HTH, GL pS: Where bouts in hotlanta you from? I actually live at the intersection of 285 and 20 on the west side.

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in asia, but only slightly less well known is this! Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!
