Cut the beam with a reference plane should work, see link

- in a section view or elevation, draw a reference plane along the slope that you want.

- name it something pertinent (Slope @ north vestibule)

- In your "Home" menu, set your plane to the reference plane you just created.

- In plan view, draw your beam.

 - Done.

Hope this helps if you haven't figured it out by now.

The slope of your beam can be determined by the parameters Start level offset and end level offset. 

I would like to know how to "trim" sloped beams  that are in a vertical plane.

Eveline,

I am not sure what you are asking.  Which of the member sin the attached image are you trying to "trim"?  Are you wanting to modify the whay that they are joining together at the ridge?  Or you want to trim them on a vertical plane at the horizontal members?

Both, I want to control the way the beams are joined at the top of the roof and the way they connect to the horizontal beam.

I realise that this may be a long way around, and it doesn't actually allow you to join beams, but this will make it look visually correct. Try using the opening tool ('modify'>'openings'>'opening on face') - select the face of the beam, then draw the shape of the cut... like i said, its not necassarily the fastest method, but you can copy the cut profile between beams.

Alternatively, you could create your own beam family with a sloping cut on it.. there is a timber one in the download section of this site.

Good luck!
