    Why is my curtain wall pattern based family behaving like this?

    Hi all

    I am making a family curtain panel family to recreate an actual panel. I have used Curtain Panel Pattern Based and the family flexes fine. It is orthogonal (all sides are at 90 degrees to each other) and are aligned to the grid. It is made by nesting a generic model into the panel family and aligning it to the grids. When I load the family into a mass surface with grids, it automatically gets rotated. (all images are attached)

    Can anyone help me find the cause and solution? I am also attaching the family where this error occurs. I tried attaching the sample project but the memory size exceeded the limit so was unable to.

    Thanks

    Virat

    Hi Virat, it has to do with the order and direction of how you extruded your panel elements. You have have to follow the numbered order of the nodes.
