Hello again.

hope you guys do not judge me. trying to learn Archicad while doing my student project.

I have a problem when I was creating the beams cuz they get cut by the columns. how can I prevent that? Cuz I want the breams to cut the columns. and then it will hold the insulation and the roof.

Many thanks again.

Look at the strengths of your building materials.
The stronger material will cut the weaker one.
So make sure your beams are using a building material that is stronger than the column.

If they both have to be the same material then there is not lot you can do - I think columns will always cut beams.
Except duplicate the building material and make one slightly weaker than the other.
Then change the columns to use the weaker material.

Thank you so much. I thought there is another way to do that.
