Hi all

Just testing the limitations of working structurally with roofs created using mass and the Model by Face method.

I want to attach a steel beam to the roof.

I believe that I can attach a beam using the pick line tool for the edges of a roof to match the profie of a roof, but not internally like you can an extruded roof.

Are there any known work arounds to this? Can I have a beam system that attachs to the underside of a roof that has been formed by creating a mass and then a roof using the model by face tool? For a reason for why we may do this, consider the profile of a bowl stadium and the structure that supports the cantilevering roof.

Any help, greatly appreciated.

Should have said. I'm using Revit Structure 2010.

Without testing, how about creating and aligning a reference plane to the u/s roof and then either align the beam to the reference plane or use the reference plane as the current 'work plane' for the beam as you draw the beam ?

Hi Daryl. Thanks for your reply.

Yes, thats a very good idea as you can align and contrain the reference plane to the roof and align and contrain the beam to the reference plane.

Unfortunetly the type of roof I have, a stadium one, is curved in two directions. 

I actually don't think its possible and I'm going to have to use something like Autocad Structural Detailing, but I wanted to sound you guys out first.
