    Flip control on structural framing elements

    I tried adding a double vertical flip control to a structural framing family, but it doesn't seem to work when loading the family into a project. The indicator appears when selecting the beam, but nothing happens when I click it. I'd like to be able to flip the beam along the Z axis. Any thoughts?

    Flip controls do not work with structural framing members. In a project using Revit 2015 you can right click on a framing member and flip it this way.

    Thanks Brian. It looks like the "Flip Structural Framing ends" option only works on families that have Material for model behavior set to steel. So this won't work for concrete beams.

    I might be wrong but I thought structural families used z-offset and rotation parameters found in the properties.
