Resizing Duplicate Dynamic Components Issue

I’m currently having an issue with resizing a dynamic component with duplicates inside it. This is a relatively new issue as it was working fine up till a few weeks ago.

This happens for example with my dynamic door component; the idea is that I should be able to stretch the door to the size of any aperture and it will fill this space, then when I click on my options menu I can choose how many doors I want in this aperture, it works out what a single door size would be if for example divided by two, the original component then changes to that size and duplicates. Up to this point it works perfectly.

The problem happens when I then resize the whole component containing the original and the duplicate. The original changes to half of the new aperture size, but the duplicate remains the same as it was with the previous aperture.

The quick fix is to change the the door quantity to 1 and then back to 2 which resets it in a way but this issue wasn’t there previous to a few weeks ago. This has affected multiple creations I have made and I’m not sure if there’s anything I can do?

you need to post the component.

the one that doesn’t work *


this seems to fix the broken one

The DCs you are creating are complex and heavy, would you consider a simpler method using a swapping technique with smaller and lighter DCs?

Thankyou, I’ll give this a go!

I would definitely consider this if I hadn’t of become so reliant on this DC as the complexity is necessary for my job. But it seems to work for me for now. Any techniques to simply would much appreciated for further adaptations.
