Structural beams rotation around own axis


#1

Been trying to figure out away to control the orientation of a structural beam in section relative to a specific surface/line (green)? I use the “StructuralFraming.BeamByCurve” node on a list of lines to generate the beams, but no luck in controlling a rotation angle around a beam’s axis.

See images below:

Hi Rashed,

I think your looking for Cross section Rotation in Dynamo. You can use Instance.Parameter.Cross Section Rotation custom node. See below example. Hope it helps.
