    Start with a "Line Based Generic Model" family template (You can change the category later). These families can be placed with 2 clicks and the length scales.
    Connect everything in the family to the 2nd ref plane that is already in the template so that it stretches with the length.

    The other way to do this is with a normal family. Make 2 ref planes that are the ends of the object and set them to "Strong Reference". Then if you use Align on the ends of the family it will be stretched instead of moved.
