Controlling Reference Planes with Angle Parameters in the Family Editor

What Revit Wants - Tue, 04/01/2014 - 22:28
In a somewhat unexpected post, landarchBIM has described a method of inferring the movement of a Reference Plane that is driven by an angle parameter.  This probably falls outside of the "best practice" category, but it may be worth a read:
http://landarchbim.com/2014/04/01/rotating-reference-planes/

The key seems to be "that the plane must be constrained to the plane it wants to move along."

Personally, I will probably stick to Reference Lines, because I don't find them too difficult to understand or control.  But hey, whatever works for you!  Oh, and if you have any problems, contact landarchBIM :-)
