I have a query regarding inserting single purlin cleat connections. It can be imputted for instance on the lower side of the purlin on a sloped rafter, however when I try to install it on the opposite slope it automatically installs the connection on the upper side of the purlin. I have tried mirroring etc. but this will not work. I do not want to delete joint box and do it this way as it makes it far more difficult to copy in transform elements. I would appreciate any assistance.
Hello I want to split a rafter beam into two separate lengths and join with two plates over a column (it is too long) I have tried drawing a polyline and then using the split beam function, however it shows as separation not possible. Can you tell me how to rectify?
Also I have set up a connection template in a separate file. The connection is a plate on both the flange of a column and a beam joined with an angle. When I try to insertion connection template it does not show the plates on the flanges but it shows the angle and the bolts that should connect to the plates. I set up the plates using the 'plate along beam flange command' I have tried different variations many times with the same result. How do I rectify this?
