    Beam and void

    I work with RST 2011.
    I need to cut a beam with a void, so I tried to put an in-place beam (void ) to cut the first one. It doesn't work!:banghead:
    The same with a concrete column.

    I tried also by face opening, but it cuts all the section and I need it on 10 cm depth.

    Any idea?? The only chance to get this is all in-place?

    What are you trying to cut for what is the opening? You might try openings.

      I need the beam part inside the red ligne to be offset as the floor on the right.
      The offset is an in-place floor (void - extrusion).
      I did the same for the beam with an in-place element (void), and any of the categories is allowed to cut the beam. It cuts the floor but not the beam.

        Yes, concrete beams and columns ignore the Cut Geometry tool.
        Perhaps the solution is to make a duplicate of the concrete beam family; something like "Concrete beam with void.rfa", and just put a void in there that can be driven with instance parameters, as shown in this example:

          Thanks guys, I will put in-place beam for this time (only one beam).

          Hope Factory will fix this soon.

            I was thinking that one could also combine different types of the same family, with different heights, to create the same effect.

              In that case I would have cut the whole Beam and just made sure the floor filled the opening area.

              Since it appears the floor is part of the step down I can't see it being an issue.

                I did answer this one way back on the original AUGI site
                however since all is lost...
                The problem (so I hear) without knowing too much about the mechanics of the program, is that the original concrete beams, are made by taking the footing family, and duplicating it. Now because of the way this footing family behaves, the beams have inherited the same issues. I have this family, which is one created to solve this same problem. This concrete beam can be cut/extended/and open using openings.

                Try this family out, it should solve your problems, and upgrade your beams to use that one.

                  With the option opening 'by face' you can easely make holes in beams or make a nose to it. This option cuts a hole through the whole beam, for recesses you can not use it. You can easely copy or move the openings and also change the size of it.
