So, for years, we've used structural families in our architectural models in the spirit of coordination.  However, structural beams do not interact with architectural elements and look really awful where, say, a glulam is supposed to be set up into the ceiling plane, but various finish layers of the roof clip through it.

 

today, I got sick of that and spent about 10 minutes making a nested void family for structual glulams which allow it to cut geometry in a project.

 

Feel free to look at the attached file, pick it apart and/or improve it.
