    Default Ceiling Mounted Monitor (need a little guidance/help)

    I need a little help here. I've got a ceiling-mounted monitor that I've been working on and I'm trying to make the mounting distance from the ceiling parametric. I've got the pole part working, but I can't figure out how to make the monitor move with the pole when the distance parameter is changed. Can someone take a look and point me in the right direction?

    Thanks in advance!
    Matt

    Well, I managed to hack something together... not sure if it's the best/most elegant way, but it's working. I've got the monitor as a nested family.

    If there's a better way to do this, please let me know.

    Thanks.

    I´d do it just the same way ! I always build my families as non hosted, and then - when needed - throw it into a hosted family, just as you did.

    Doing so, makes it a lot easier to re-use the same content, in a lot of ways. Well done
