    Detail Item Not Flexing in Family

    Hello Everyone,

    I am creating a door family with nested swing lines. The swing lines are parametric and flex perfectly fine, but when I load them into the family they will not flex. I have them locked to corresponding references too, any ideas what I'm overlooking? I greatly appreciate the feedback!!

    Thanks!

    Have you linked your nested parameters through to the parent family parameters or are you making changes through 'edit type'?

    How do I link them? I have just been trying to flex it using other parameters that I created in the parent family. The nest parameters are not showing up in the parent family.

    Select the instance of your nested family then where I have highlighted in yellow on the attached PP image press this button to link to your parent family parameters. Type parameters you'll need to hit 'edit type' first.
    Then you can control them from family types Name:  Capture.PNG
