I need some help as I have never done this before.
I was wondering if you someone could tell me how to create a curved beam in either section or elevation. I was reading someone created one along a path but I don't know how to do that. I am using RST 2012. I am hoping that someone can guide me in the right direction. The architect has is shown on their drawings but this all new territory to me.
All help and suggestions welcome.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Start the beam tool. In the ribbon (close to the right), there is a box with a bunch of different lines called the "Draw Gallery".
Note that the default is a straight line.
Chose one of the curves, and start sketching.
To create a vertically curved beam, switch to an elevation or section view, and do the same.
Hi, the first time and several times after that, the arc option in the draw gallery would not be available for some reason. after kicking my computer and work on something else for a while. it seemed to become available and was able to draw the beam on a arc. (mental note: make sure you have a reference plan to draw on)
That thought never occured to me. Even though I have already drawn the framing, I am going go back and give the copy/monitor option a try. thanks.
Giving it some further thought, I am not certain if you can copy-monitor them in. But you can copy-paste for sure, when you select the link tab through to get the beam(s) you want and past to same place. There are only certain items you can bring in with copy-monitor feature
