Ram Structural Modeling Question

Ram Structural Modeling Question

Ram Structural Modeling Question

Hi. I am trying to learn Ram structural system on my own and have started a model with the tutorial provided by Bentley. I am having trouble with assigning a deck to the 2nd floor slab and 3rd floor atrium. Can someone point me in the right direction? The model is attached. Thanks in advance.

RE: Ram Structural Modeling Question

At E-2 and B-2 the framing is not all coming into the column. You end up with a couple of small jogs in the slab edge which invalidate it as a complete closed loop and when the slab edge is broken or has an extraneous part the application of deck is void. The data check helps here. Or since it's the tutorial, just open the completed file from the default data directory.
