See attached.

If I set my beam's start attachment type to distance in lieu of end elevation then drop the column top elevations, the beam system slopes automatically. However the beam/joist (colored green in beam system 1) does not slope. 

Is the correct method to create two beam systems (beam systems 2 and 3) and have the red beam/joist as a stand-alone?

 

Question 2. If I redraw an existing sloping beam system it does not automatically slope. Do I need to reset the column tops, then lower them again in order to get the new beam system to slope?

 

Question 3. Is my approach the preferred method as opposed to the drawing a reference plane method?

Here's the real world scenario I'm currently modeling. I would like to have one large beam system, but the steel joists that are along the column lines do not slope, at least not with the start attachment type as distance mentioned above.

How would you slope this roof?

This panelized roof has a level ridge, with sloping ledgers. The drainage is directed to the rear corners. For this I first established the center beamline, then the ledgers and there slope. Then use the beam pick for creating the sloping framing.

A folllow-up in case this arises for someone in the future.

The reason a beam/joist, which is along a grid within a beam system, does not adjust to correct height (refer to the pic in post #1) is because the '3D' box was not checked.

I always thought the 3D box was simply for drawing the beam system in 3D view. Apparently it effects the elevations of beam systems.
