I have a project that has “x” brace frames.  One brace will be continuous and the other will weld to a gusset plate at the mid-point of the first brace.  How do I create this?  I can make intersecting braces but can not break the second brace at the mid-point of the first.

im not sure if this is what u want to achieve...but here goes...

maybe you could create three instances of the brace...one long and two small pieces...

That is what I was trying to create but couldn't get it to work. The analytical model kept messing it up.  How did you do it?

I am trying to create a single story x-brace like what gentyche has shown.  The two-story x-brace as shown by sheartab is easy in Revit but I haven't figured out the single story.

Have you tried the coping tool? Works for me on x-braces Smile

What I would do:

 

Place a framing elevation (while in plan view) on the grid you want to model the braced frame.Activate the new frame elevation.

 

Draw reference plane at the center of the beam vertically and horizontally and extend each past the workpoints. (I realize this is an extra step, but I like to be sure)

 

Draw a continuous brace from low workpoint on one side to the high workpoint on the other.

 

Draw a second brace from opposite low workpoint to the center of cont brace. Then draw a brace from the center of the cont brace to the opposite high workpoint.

 

I just did it and it worked like a charm...
