    tapered sloped beam

    Hello All

    I am new to revit and using 2011. I have taken a couple of courses but most of what I have learned is self taught. I have been given the task of creating a small canopy that contains a tapered beam but on a sloped on the attached pdf. I have created a family for the tapered beam but I can't figure out how to get to slope. also as you will notice that there is a beam in the centre between the tapered sloped beams.

    Can someone suggest the best way to go about achieving this. in the family i created, i started with a blend extrusion

    Thanks in advance

    I think I am finally getting the hang of this revit stuff.
    Revit never cooperates when you're in a hurry

    Welcome to the forum!!!

    To get your slopes you will need to either set your deck to the correct slow then associate the beams to the bottom of the deck... or... you can use TOS for each end of the beams. The Blend is IMO the best way to create the tapered beams. Although it can do funky things if the family is not built the way Revit likes them. You can find my tapered beam family here. http://www.revitforum.org/architectu...red-beams.html

    and the updated family is attached. I couldnt find the Channel type catalog but its based off the OOTB family.
