Hello.

Problem: Whenever I draw a structural beam which ends right near the wall the componend end bubble jumps to the center of the wall (see attached picture). For visual representation it is fine, but it is no good for my beam schedules. Isolating the beam and attaching it to reference plane does not help. Why is this happening and how can I have the correct beam lenght?

Thanks.

I drew my beam so that the component end was at the face of the wall which made the beam stop short of the wall.  I added a reference plane  at the face of the wall and used the beam shape handel to drag it past the reference line then used the cut geometry tool to cut the beam to the reference plane and it worked.

Is the wall you made a structural bearing one? I have no problem with cuting the beam to reference planes or moving the drag handles. The problem is that when I have the component end at the wall it jumps to the middle of it as you can see in picture. There is also a reference plane right at the wall, but the beams ignore them.

In the beam schedules I use the beam lenght not cut lenght parameter, so that is why I should try to solve this problem.

Thanks.
