Posiciones geométricas de Vigas y Arriostramientos (Rvt2014)

Autodesk Revit Structure

In a previous post I outlined a procedure and method of offsetting beams both in the horizontal and vertical planes whilst leaving the analytical model unaffected. In the new Revit 2014 release Autodesk have included some interesting new tools to control these offsets more effectively. Of particular interest is the new behavior of roof bracing.

The offsets can either be uniform or independent. For most examples you will likely want to keep a uniform offset but I have found that…
