    Structural Framing - Beam Auto-Joining

    Hi,

    I have a structural framing family which I downloaded and have adapted to suit our needs.

    The family is a metal webbed joist and I've had no issue with it previously as obviosuly a joist is spaced apart from each other.

    What I am needing to do is place them end to end but with a tolerance gap of 18mm. If i move it to the desired location the joist automatically joins with the next one, without our desired tolerance. The family doesn't have the 'disallow join' on the end node, instead it has the 'drage generic curve driven component'. I can't seem to get around this issue.

    Is there anything I can do to stop it connecting automatically?

    maybe link your family up here and I will have a look at its behaviour?

    Hi, sorry i managed to get around this by moving the beams/framing off centre from each other, but not the best workaround.
    I'm now looking at this again, and having to use beams end to end with a gap, but it's auto joining. See link below to family that I am using. https://we.tl/MYYOi1TiP0
