Tilting beams and joists



The beam PIO should allow the 3D beams and joists to have differntial end elevations and roatation about the web centroidal axis.

Currently I have to use 3D modeling (convert to Mesh or extrude along path) to create sloped steel or wood beams.

Also, in some applications (side loaded girts for example) it is necessary to model the steel beams, angles, channels, etc. rotated about the centroid axis so that the item lays on it's side. Resisting side thrust loads, e.g. wind or earthquake.

(No - rafter tool is apparently specifically for wood rafters not beams and doesn't model steel shapes, I joists, etc. - only wood)
