I would like to set an angle parameter that would batter the ends of the L-beams & Rectangular beams. Can I do this with an existing family and just repalce the end reference planes to angled?

You can try it and see if it works.  Otherwise just use reference lines in the project at the angle you want and cut the end of the beam.

Cutting it in the project would be a better solution.

 

Modifying the ends of a beam family can be a bit tricky if you are not familiar with how to make them. You may find (typical of steel) several reference planes on top of each other at end of both sides that are controling cut backs and what not. And if incorrectly modified and reloaded into a project, will force Revit to regen all instances of that family and how they connect to other members and if it cant, it deletes tham.

 

Also, you would have to have the angle parametric so Revit could account for changes in the angle however slight they may be.

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!
