    Beam Wall End Cutback

    I am trying to figure out why a beam that frames into the end of a wall doesn't cutback properly. The top of wall and top of beam align. Beams that frame into the side of a wall cutback right. So why doesn't it work for the end of the wall. Any thoughts. see attached.

    hi, it may deal with the detection of reference planes for walls faces, and it is not here at the end. try to play a little with a ref. plane perpendicular to wall faces so that the beam cutback.

    My understanding is that that is a bug that the factory is aware of, but is not severe enough to warrant any action at this time.

    Definatly a bug, it only happens if you beam is parallel with the walls analytical plane, if you are at a slight angle you will get a cutback
