    Beams and holes....again

    Hi structure people,

    do you model holes for bolts in steel members sometimes? or just detail component?

    thanks.

    I almost always let the detail components handle the representations. Once in a while I would create a modeled connection for a 3D detail but still didn't model the holes in the steel.

      I have no reason to model the holes. We're not a fabricator. So I just use detail components and let it be.

          No holes, not since the "cut with void" option in 2012 became available. I do model them from time to time (just for the fun of it...) but putting them in the beam is way too complicated (tried this once and stopped after day or two of :banghead. So I made parametric families with all plates, bolts and nots in them and place that in the project. Then create a Model Group and presto: done.

            ok thanks.

            I wanted to have a void inside the bolts to cut my beam, but beams doesn't allow this.....only openings by face > crap...

              I believe I fixed this by using a solid and turning that off in view. Or I didn't care enough to tamper with it.

                I haven't tried it, but if you edit your beams and check this box "Cut with Voids When Loaded" you might be able to acheive what you want.

                  I can confirm it does work

                    I tried with a bolt that has a void, attach command or cut command were without effect on the beam; but it works on a floor. so the problem should be with the beam...
                    I changed the material type, does nothing...
                    I thought it doesn't work, Ben what is your workflow please?
