Hi!

I'm fairly new to Revit and I'm trying to model a wooden framing for a small building.

My problem is the whole beams connecting to columns function. Can I turn it of? Because I don't really get it :S

Beams sometimes joins to columns, sometimes they are cut before reaching the column, sometimes they go past. Anyone know a workaround for this? And why this is happening?

 Thanks in advance,

Christopher

Chris,

 

While I'm not sure why it happens, this is also something I have struggled with when it comes to the structural side of Revit.  I have found that even though in plant he beam appears to cut off before the column, if you look at that same beam in 3D you'll notice it actually meets the column/girder.  I have found the best way to get consistent results is to place 1 joist, array/copy it across as many times as you'll need it then use the multi extend trim tool to extend all of the joists to the beam/column.

 

See if this helps any.  Sorry I don't know more on this subject.

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in asia, but only slightly less well known is this! Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!

For analytical purposes, beams are always attached to either column or wall. If graphically you can show a gap by selecting the beam, enter elelment Properties, under Construction input a negative value for start and end Extension. This will make your beam offset away from the column.
