Hi everyone! My work colleagues and I have been having this issue when having adaptive families driven by Dynamo.
We usually use 2 and 5 points adaptive families. Each point holds a nested 2D family that is used to generate a 3D geometry.
We usually use them on linear projects, such as bridges, tunnels, roads, etc. Sometime we have to use several adaptive families on the same position to create different elements.
In this case there are 5 adaptive families using the same 5 adaptive points to recreate the shape of a tunnel.
Our problem is that sometimes, without any warning or reason, some the geometries disappear. Since it’s not possible to show the adaptive family in that case, let me show it with the nested families visible, to properly explain what’s going on: See my next posts.
This adaptive family has the same insertion points and the same values in every parameter as the rest of the families, but… it gets invisible. I believe on the of nested families gets its direction “flipped”, in a way that it doesn’t allow the geometry to be properly generated.
If I FLIP the family, the family gets suddenly visible: (See my next posts)
But it has everyone of the control planes suddanly rotated.
This problem has been happening to me several years. The way I create adaptive families has changed, but it keeps popping up. Has anyone an idea what could be going on?
