Hi Everyone,

I am trying to create a family that shows a shear stud on top of a beam when cut in section. I created a family using the out of the box beam family and modifying it to show the shear stud.

Next, I added some parameters to tie in my shear stud. I am using a detail component and symbolic lines for the shear stud.

Following, I loaded the family into a project. At the second floor it drops my beam according to the shear stud parameter that I added to tie in my stud. Not sure why revit keeps thinking that my shear stud is a model object.

I also made the shear stud as a graphic, but it still keeps droping my beam as indicated above.

I am trying to accomplish having all my section draw the shear stud instead of manually placing shear studs in all section views. I attached some screen shots (pdfs) so you guys can see what is going on.

In your modified beam family, make sure that you have the top of beam work plane saved as origin with strong reference.

I'm having the same issue, only with a 3D stud on the beam instead of 2D. The solution in the second post does not work. I've tried messing with different reference plane types and properties to no avail. If there are lines or geometry above the top of the beam in the family, it affects the beam's top elevation in the project.

Anyone know how to fix this?
