Beams and columns are two seperate elements in revit. Sounds like the family is incorrectly labelled as being a column. The beam would need to be recreated as a structural column. HTH.

I received some additional information about my original question and thought I would post it here for others who might have the same probelm. Edit the family, change the category (Settings: Family Category and Parameters) from Structural Framing to Structural Columns and then save it as a different family file (like grd 450 col). Load that family into the project and then try again. A good resukt all round. Jason

I replied to your thread in augi.. check it out. edit: nevermind.. that's my post quoted above =) I can see that method being a problem with Stuctural Analysis but I'm not familiar enough with how RS works so I couldn't be sure. There may neeb to be some tweaking of structural parameters in order for it to analyze correctly, so be wary of that. Post edited on 2006-07-19 09:28:13

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in asia, but only slightly less well known is this! Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!
