I have a weird problem scheduling beam lengths.
I wanted to schedule beam lengths and totals for specified Complex Profile(s).
When I create a chedule without Complex Profile filter criterio, everything works fine (see attachment wo criteria).
After I specify my Complex profile, each beam lists four times. Filtering out Beam Segment Element does not do anything here.
What am I missing?
You need to set the criteria so it looks for a beam or segments with a particular profile.
I'm not 100% sure this will work but give it a go.
OK, if you do it as just 'Element type is beam segment' and 'Complex Profile is insert_name_here', then that should work.
Get rid of the criteria for 'Element type is beam'.
It will list all of the segments of your beams that match that profile.
If you have beams with only one segment, but still use that profile, they will list as well.
Any segments that do not match that profile name will not list.
So you wont' get the overall length of a segmented beam, but the length of each segment.
Does that do what you want?
Beam segments don't have a left and right length.
Only a 3D length.
Only entire beams have a left and right length available to list (I am not sure why).
Are there actually 4 beams in your model, or just one?
To be sure, select just the one beam in plan, right click on the schedule and choose 'List selected items only'.
I just tried with 1 beam with 3 segments, all the same profile.
