Connection ignore weld on one rib

Hi

Im using the macro ' End plate- Beam/beam with rib. Every time the one rib does not get welded to the main beam. It isnt always the same rib that gets neglected, sometimes the one on the connection side, other times the one on the back side.

On the attached picture it is the rib on the connection side.

Any idea why this is happening?

Maybe is just a view glitch. Try Regen very close to the Connection.

 

Try to create a group from the Connection Elements, add a Drawing and see if it can recognize the weld. If not, that's a problem.

Hi

It is not just a view glitch. I detetmined that he one rib actually penetrate the main beam, and that is why the weld is not created. It is still odd that the automatic connection does not fit the rib to the beam correctly.
