    Beam Famiily....I'm just not getting it

    Can one of you Masters please take a look at the attached family?
    It's in RST 2010....here's the deal.....

    I need a beam that will flex in width and depth, the beam needs to keep a "shelf" 7" wide x 8.75" deep.
    I took the OOTB beam family, saved it as a new name. Made a new sweep profile (again using the one that was in the OOTB family) to make the shelf.
    I edited the sweep, swapping out the original profile (rectangular) with the new profile I made.

    The new profile is there, but it won't flex.

    All I changed was the profile. How do I lock the new profile to the reference planes?

    I've been messing with this for hours and I'm just NOT understanding...or "seeing" what I'm missing.

    If one of you could fix this...and tell me what I'm doing wrong....I'd apprciate it more than you could imagine.

    Thanks!

    No need to import a profile. Just sketch what you want and lock to planes. Set ref planes with params for step.
    If you open mine, select beam, select edit sweep, select edit pofile, it may help you understand.

      Incredible. How fast the answers come here.
      Thank you Mark...it appears that again I've assumed it must be harder that it actually is....
