View Full Version : Array in Heat Exchanger family
2009-06-15, 05:06 PM
Attached is an image of the result i'm needing an answer to.
When I change the height parameter the array steps up. I have the elements locked to the reference planes that is associated with the height. I connot figure out how to keep it flush.
Better yet, does anyone have a plate and frame rfa? I'm tired of wasting my time creating equipment with issues like these.

With the array crooked go to an elevation so you are looking straight at it. Edit the first element in the array and align/lock the center or end to a reference plane. Repeat for last element in the array. It should straighten out for you.
If you post/email me your family I'll see if I can work it out for you.

Brian I did that...I thought.
The problem is the array has a paramter to define it's length, so there really isn't a "last one".
I will attach it so you can look. I really need to figure this out. I have ran into this many times before. Also I get this warning if the array gets a certain length.
This array contains multiple copies of some identical geometry. Performance might be improved by using a nested family and arraying copies of its instances.
What do you know about that? Should I just create a rectangular family and load it than array that? It seems that that would be worse for performance.

I fixed the height problem by adding parameter.
Take a look.
You would be better off to do the arrayed plate as a nested object....

Can you save it as 2009? I had to uninstall 2010 because it kept opening the Beta version.
