    Nested Connection in Structural Framing Family RVT 2016

    Hi Guys,

    Hopefully someone can provide some advice.

    I have nested a connection into a beam family and loaded in my project, however once loaded into project the justification of the beam changes and the top up the nested family becomes the justification point. I have tried every approach i can think of to solve this but to no avail. I have attached both families and a couple of screen grabs to describe my scenario.

    Thanks in advance for an potential solutions.

    any changes to the beams over all dimensions even threw and nested family that is welded on will change how revit reports top and bottom of the beam. this will effect control purposes however using the spot elevation tool will still get you any elevation that you would need
