Beam constrained in two different levels

Dear all, thanks in advance,


I'm placing a Beam component into my project.

But the Beam goes from the level 1 to level 2 in the roof (is a single Flange Beam).

as a Reference Level I have  Level 1, and in End Level Offset, I`m trying  to use a formula to constrain the end of the Beam to the level 2.


there is a some way to do this? constrain a beam between 2 leveles?

I tryed this Level2.height or Level1, but it does not work.


anyone help?

Hi. You should use 3d snapping when creating a beam between 2 levels. Make sure you change the end attachment to distance for both the beginning and the end otherise any changes in the slab and the beam will not follow. Hope this helps.
