Cut timber beams with an X

Back to using AC after 6 years away...

 

What is the way now to make  cut wood beams show an X in section??-

 

I did a search but the last conversation was in 2011.

 

Thanks

best bet is still a custom profile with 4 triangular fills. The profile manager no longer "heals" fills automatically in section the way it did 6 years ago, so you can use a single fill (building material). You can also set a range of horizontal/vertical stretch parameters, so you only need a single profile to cover all square cut timber for beams/joists/etc.

OK, so its still the same solution from 10 years ago!

 

I had a false memory of reading that GS had updated the beam tool to integrate this feature.

same solution, but it works better now. I still remember drawing profiles with a 1/64" gap between fills so the section didn't "heal"
