Derp Moment

Where am I messing up this block? I'm trying to get a simple rotation about the center point but it doesn't seem to be cooperating.

Remove the Distance2 parameter from the Rotation's selection set. It then works correctly. Oh, you should also set the INSBASE to 0,0,0 as well.

Thanks, is there a better way to stretch both sides?

Distance 2 is chained to distance 1 with an angle offset of 180 degrees.

You still use the chained Distance2, just omit it from the Rotation Selection Set....I think it is automatically included when you select the Distance1 since they are linked.

To do this, right-click the Rotate Action icon, go to the Action Selection Set, then select Modify Selection Set, then type in R, Enter, now select the Distance2 parameter, Enter.

Wow, that was the fix. Don't quite understand the why just yet, I'll have to look into it sometime. Thanks!
