Would you tell me how you got the beam to do that, Matthew?

The beam needs to have a higher intersection priority than the wall and the layers have to have the same intersection number. A curious feature of this (for which I have yet to find a use) is that the holes can appear or not depending on the layers settings.

Sorry, I meant make the beam turn into a 10x10 grid of small blocks.

You just draw whatever shape(s) you want with fills in the profile editor.

I'm not sure why it's never occurred to me that one can make unconnected pieces in the profile editor like that but it still be one object. Having a bit of an epiphany morning here.

Thanks.
