How to add a rotation parameter to a component family with fixed geometry. Suppose you would like to add a rotation parameter to some 2D or 3D geometry (component family) that otherwise does not have any parameter attached to it. This would most likely happen for any imported geometry (DWG) or any basic building block, created directly in the Revit family editor.

We’ll use the example of a basic solid extruded rectangle, created inside of Revit. It has to be able to rotate about its insertion point (middle left of the object, indicated by the point in the next image).
