Hello all, another question.  I have been challenged to build a model of a Fieldhouse, that we designed a number of years ago, in Revit.  The structural framing calls for LH series bar joist, that have an arched top chord.  The roof is a barrel vault.  The bearing walls have different bearing heights on the front and rear walls.  Most of this is no problem, I have the bearing wall heights set, I've applied the roof to a mass that fits the profile, added my overhangs, I can import bar joists and set them to 2 different bearing heights, but how do I modify the joist to have the curved top chord?

I need the top chord to have 3' extensions as well.  I can't find anything even remotely close to this anywhere and I'm not comfortable enough with the family editor to create this.

Anybody help with this, or give me an idea how to modify the existing LH series bar joists to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance.  I love this forum.
