    Extensions - base plate placed at top of column!

    For some reason revit extensions steel connections function has decided to place the base plate at the top of some of my columns. I've checked the properties of the columns and all settings when placing but can't figure out why. I can manually reassign the work plane but this is time consuming and I'd like to figure out why this is happening. Anyone else had the same problem? (I've also had a similar issue with beam-to-column connections with haunching and plates facing the opposite direction)

    I'd guess it is because when the columns were first modelled they were done with a depth rather than height. Once done this way I am not sure it can be changed. Just a guess. Try some tests and see.
