I'm trying to put a steel structure in my building but we can't figure out how to attach the beams to the roof. Any help would be appreciated. Michelle JCHS Architecture Class

The elements protruding through the roof look to be curtain walls with mullions? Is this the case? If so you can select the wall and choose to attach the top to the roof, you will be asked to delete the mullions as it may not be able to create them... You then should be able to re-add these mullions in... If this is not how you've created it let me know...

These are not mullions. They are simply columns and beams. There is no curtain wall. Thanks for the help. Michelle

MichelleI was afraid of that...

Certaily looks like it would've been easier using custom profiles for the beams and setting them as mullions, this would then give you the ability to attach to top.

I assume you want all those beams to curve with the roof? If not, it's a matter of disassociating the work plane and moving them down to be under the roof...

If you need them to be curved then i'm afraid they are going to be have to be redrawn using reference planes and then drawing them curved in elevation...

Personally i think it would be easier to redraw them using curtain walls. Remember to make all the curtain walls non-room bounding to avoid problems with overlapping walls. Also, you would then select the panels and change them all to empty panels.

Another option would be to create the roof framing as an inplace family using sweeps, which may give you a little bit better control than using structural beams.

HTH.
