When I looking at my plan and set my detail level to course my beam lines do not go fully between the columns and some of the beam lines are out of place.
In structural we want the joists & beams in plan to show as a single line. The medium & fine settings in plan have way to many lines to them to give us the look we want.
Is there someway around this so the beams are diplayed properly between the columns and in their proper location in the course setting?
Hi. On the structure tab, structure panel, click on the arrow at the bottom right corner which takes you to structural settings. You can also access this dialog from the manage tab, settings panel. In the structural setting, set the cutback distances to 0 and that should do the trick. Hope this helps.
Hi. First, just to make sure, you need to set the beam/truss symbolic cutback distance to 0. Then, there are 3 things you can manipulate in the instance properties of the beam itself: lateral justification, start level offset, end level offset. If this doesn't work out, maybe you can send an image of what you're trying to accomplish or even better a simple file and I will be glad to check.
Hi jim. There is no attachement so I couldn't take a look. Anyways, just send it again. Better yet, if you could just save your file, delete anything that is not related and leave only the area of question, purge unneeded elements (From the manage tab), and save again, you should be able to send the file. Regards.
