okay this one's got me stumped..

 

i have a joist component loaded into the project..

in the family editor it says 24 feet long..

in the project it measures 34 feet long..

i don't know how it got 34 feet- but i'm

now trying to make it 34' 4"..

and all it wants to do is move from side to side

and up and down- and i've tried everything

to change its length- and can't..

 

ha ha- just like the revit game puzzle that it is..

can you upload the family?  sounds like there's a parameter not working.

thanks jacobs-

i've been doing battle with this steel joist

for several days and it's just beating me

up at every turn..

 

i have four block walls- very simple 35x19

and ten feet hight..

 

all i want to do is learn how to get control

of a metal joist to put on top of it to support

a roof..  there doesn't seem to be a need to

take it into the family editor.. the ends of

it will set down on the top of the wall (level 2)

by offsetting the ends in the properties- but the

ends want to center on the wall and any other

length i create by rehosting won't won't go on

the wall top.. there seems to be so much to

know about operating these kinds of

components that i don't know where to

begin.. can you tell me anything about it?

thanks

I'm probably misunderstanding your question, but you can control the height offset and length of joists in the element properties.

see attached image
