    Default Plywood Web Joist Z Direction

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I have Plywood Web Joists and I need to lower them 3" from the Upper Floor Plane. But as you can see on the attached, the z-Direction offset Value is not an option. How come? It is for my steel beams.

    Because that object (block) has a specific height, maybe?
    The S197 gen Ford Mustang, and the F-4 Phantom both prove the same theory. "With enough power applied, a school bus will fly."

    You can make the start level offset -3 (negative three) and the End Level Offset the same, that will lower the joist 3"
