I'm a newb on this site and I've only been working with Revit Building 9.1 for the past month or so. I'm trying to put a beam system together with each beam having a different slope (I have elevation points to work with, if that helps any), and I was wondering if anyone had a good approach to doing this?  I tried looking at the help file under Beam Systems, but I didn't quite understand it, and I couldn't find a related topic on this forum regarding this.

I figured I could just layout each beam and adjust the elevations at each end, but if someone knows a quicker way, it'd save me a lot of time. Thanks!

Try selecting the beam system, click "edit work plane" on the options bar and select "disassociate". Then you should be able to at least rotate your beam system to the angle you would like it to be.

 

I personally have given up on beam systems. They seem to have a mind of their own I swear. What I do now is use a (detail) line based beam and manually place my joists/beams to the detail lines.

The easiest method is to use the pick supports command and set the "3D" option for the beam system.  That way if the structural walls, floor or columns have a slope or twisting form the beams will automatically have offsets to match this.
