Beam/column joins change

Hi there,
I created a steel structure in dynamo with Structural Design package by following this tutorial:
It created the frames with a pitched roof which is fine by me however I noticed that the sloped girders miter connect to each other at ridge level.
I need them to be straight cut: I can achieve that manually in Revit via the beam/column joins command.
Is there a way to accomplish the task in Dynamo?
Thanks in advance for your help.


can you provide a sample file and your script to know your progress?


please see attached dynamo graph, 3D structure model and a PDF file with description of the beam-column joins I wish to change in Dynamo.
Thanks for your help.

Hi @blsalvio,
thank you for your contribute and help: your solution is working!
However I did find other issues arising with the bracings and columns.
See attached pdf description file (page 2) and my revit file.
