Ram Structural System Beam Orientation

Ram Structural System Beam Orientation

Ram Structural System Beam Orientation

Does anyone know if you can rotate a beam section? For instance, I have a HSS8x4 that I would like use in the horizontal orientation (weak axis beanding for gravity loads)

RE: Ram Structural System Beam Orientation

Beams are always vertical, plumb in RAM SS. You could modify the master table and beam tables, adding a new section called HSS4x8x... for example and achieve the desired result in this case, but for a wide flange that might not be an option.
