    oops - forgot to slope the steel

    Hello All

    I thought i posted this question previously for another project but I cannot find the post.

    Anyway, I have finished a new project all in steel and silly me forgot to set certain columns to a lower elevation to slope the steel, joist and deck. (architect does not want sloped insulation).

    I need to drop 2 columns and 4 beams by 4" to slope the steel and I was wondering how I can do it so that the joist will adjust automatically and the deck show the slope

    sorry for the newbie question, this is something I was never shown how to do.

    Thanks in advance

    Unfortunately, there's not a "all-in-one" answer that would solve that issue because it all depends on the way you modeled your steel structure. Assuming your beam systems are set to "3D", they should adjust themselves if you lower the beams they sit on. For the deck, you will have to add a sub-element and set it to the correct elevation.

    Here's a thread I started a while ago about a way to control steel structures when they are very typical (No overhang or continuous beams): http://www.revitforum.org/structure-...structure.html
