Hello,   our project has two grid layouts, rotated one to each other with some angle (not 90 degrees). When I place walls on the grid, lock them to the grid, and move the grid, walls move along, that is ok. But when I rotate one grid layout to change slightly the angle (let's say from 30 degrees to 20), connected walls and everything else doesn't rotate with the layout.Is there something I'm doing wrong here?Thanks for any hint...Regards Frantisek Stafek

I don't think you are doing anything wrong.  I thing that is just the way the constraints work.  I think the wall must be parallel to the grid and then if the grid move the wal will adjust accordingly.  If you rotate the grd you should get a warning dialog saying "constraints are not satisfied and you'll have the option to remove the constraints.  HTH.

If you detach the constraints, you will have to go through and re-attach the condstraints that revit needs to make the rotation work. I believe that from my humble experience is that you may have yo set up reference lines at 90 deg and linked with a locked to each other witha an angluar dimension, then attatch the wall componets to the grid with "locked" dimensions strings and align. Be sure to check the rotation of the reference lines first to make sure they will rotate as you want before you go and lock things to them.

I wish the dialoge pop-up boxes would give a better explanation of what the issues are when there is and error.

Good luck
