    Creating a line base fence family from a generic fence family

    Hi


    I am trying to create have a line base family from a generic fence family
    so I can place it on a fencing layout without copying the fence family over and over.
    I've tried to create several line based fencing families but it never works.
    I confess that imputing line based formula's isn't my strongest point.
    Could somebody have a look at this and tell me why I cant seem to get it to work.
    I have attached the fence and the line based family I'm trying to create from it.
    I would greatly appreciate it.


    Cheers

    Not a huge fan of including the post in the family you are repeating, is consistently placing double posts at every joint.

    I would also never model this component using Structural Framing components because of the joinery and sometimes weird behaviour of (double) nested SF.

    Your Formula is not that hard: number_fences = rounddown(Length/fence_spacing) (if you want to always have all the fences completely within the line you draw.

    I would change the spacing parameter to a Type one, and you do not need it to constrain anything in the family.
