View Full Version : Beam with variable height on the ends
2007-11-22, 03:10 PM
Can anyone explain it to me, why revit adds extra 1/2" to my dimension? Please look at the attached file and compare left and right ends (1000mm vs 1013mm)

I have experienced such problem years ago.
I don't know how to transfer you to the right thread.
You may try searching :beam problem" , should get something related.
Below is quoted from the response from Paul Andersen to my question ,
I hope it would help you too.
Cheuk, I did some further testing and it appears that all framing members of the following material types: Concrete, Other, Precast Concrete and Steel, are designed to automatically hold back the physical / graphical end of the member 1/2" (13mm) from the face of columns, walls, etc. unless purposely built not to. In the case of the delivered concrete framing members and the _Taperbeam family I previously posted a constrained 1/2" (13mm) extension beyond the member end reference planes is required to close this gap. Framing members of the Wood material type seem to be the only ones that do not behave in this manner.
