Nine times out of ten when I'm designing an addition or deck the support beams are dropped beams. But every once is awhile
the design calls for flush beams where the joist are hung off the beams. So I do up my main floor plan, copy and save it to
create my foundation plan, erase everything I don't want on the foundation plan and then proceed to place the piers and support
beams for the building and decks on the foundation plan. I then add both the the foundation and main floors to the Model. The
problem I struggle with is when stacking the main floor on top of the foundation the building and decks want to treat the support
beams like dopped beams and they want to stack ontop of the beams. If I try to raise the beams to be flush ( within the floor )
the building or deck just rises up ontop again. So I go through the process of un-checking Cleanup on all involved components
inclduing the floor system, walls and beams thinking that since nothing should cleanup then Softplan should allow the beams to
be pushed up into the floor or deck to become flush beams. But alas that is not the case Softplan still pushes the building or deck
up to sit ontop of the beams thereby continuing to treat the beams as dropped beams and not allowing them to become flush beams.
I've even tried Anchoring the Floor and Walls but all to no avail. I suppose I could draw the beams using Solids to get around this
but thought there must be a way using beams to make then Flush without having the structure above keep moving upwards. Is
there some process I'm missing here. The attached jpeg shows the beams that I'm trying to push upwards into the floor assembly.
