I need to skew precast L-beams for ramps on parking structures. I would like to just edit the existing family to incorporate this additional parameter. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Can you post an image of what you are trying to achieve.  I believe Revit already can do what you are trying to accomplish out of the box.

Sorry, I believe the correct terminology is to batter ends of the beam.

You can either put your beam on a reference plane or on a level and offset the ends to where you need them, then you can cut the beam to beam connections to get them to clean up the way you have posted. You may need to use reference lines on the face of the beam you want to cut it to.

I am so very familiar with cutting the beam which works great when only a handful to work with. In my work I deal with large quantities of only precast L-shaped beams where the parameters are few, I would rather have the family with an angle parameter to plug in once and create similar many times. I know it can be done easily by an advanced user, I'm just not quite there yet and asking for some assistance. Thanks!
