You can create non-planar beam systems in which the elevation of a beam is defined by its sketch lines.
See also Creating 3D Beam Systems on Ruled Surfaces.
3D beam system
Note that sketched beam lines
- Can only define slope when they are created using the Pick Supports tool.
- That have a beam as their support always define slope.
- That have a wall as their support have a Defines slope property that you can edit. The default value is true.
The elevation of the end of a beam in a beam system is determined as follows:
- If the end of the beam connects to a sketch line that defines slope, the beam is connected to the top of the associated support.
- If the sketch line does not define slope, then the end of the beam is elevated to a plane defined by the endpoints of the 2 nearest sketch lines that do define slope.
Beam system elevated by nearest sketch lines
- If there are no lines in the sketch that define slope, the beam system behaves like a 2D beam system.
To add a 3D beam system
- On the ribbon, click Beam System.
