View Full Version : Slab Edge-Metal Angle Profile Upside Down
2005-07-13, 10:31 PM
I tried to add a "Slab Edge-Metal Angle" profile to my metal deck floor but the profile of the angle seems to be upside down. Is that just me?

I had a few minutes to give this a look and there seems to be some curious behavior. I created a sweep around a simple 25' square slab (Floor: 4" LW Concrete on 2" Metal Deck) using the Slab Edge-Metal Angle:6" x 6" x 3/8" Profile. If I sketched or picked the sweep path in a plan view the profile would load upside down. If I pick the perimeter of the slab (bottom edge) from a 3D view the profile works correctly. Whichever way you set the path if the profile attaches upside down or is rotated incorrectly you can adjust this with the angle instance parameter in the sweep properties dialog. I may have time to try a few other things later today. HTH

That is a bit of strange behaviour, you're right. I have no problem picking hte plan view slab with a slab edge profile for a slab-on-grade.
I think they just have the profile upside down, don't you? If I get some time I will try to fix the profile and see what happens.

I agree that the profile does appear to be upside down, however I didn't have time to test it any further. Thanks for finding this one. It's always nice to know about these things before you need them under a deadline.
