    Beam Systems on a slope.

    Hi all, I am currently working on a project involving beam systems on a sloped roof, and some of the beam systems have gone in fine. However, some of them (mainly the hip beam systems) go in but smash through the steel members instead of cutting back, as shown in the screenshots here. Anyone know how to stop this? thanks

    First, make sure that the two types of structural members are loaded in the project, let's say, type A for the main members, and type B for the secondary ones. Do the roof. Then, use Home > Work plane > Set, and specify the bottom face of one side of the roof as the new work plane. Then use Beam system; use the edges of that side of the roof as your sketch. Specify the direction for the type A members in relation to the sketch. Specify spacing and other settings in the Beam system properties. Finish the first beam system. Move the work plane up so that it aligns with the top of the main members. Do the second Beam system with type B members in the other direction. Finally, you need to adjust the location of the roof so that it is above the secondary members.
