Modeling Structural Beams

Beams area under the category Structural Framing in Revit. For a typical building structure, it is better to add Grids and Columns before adding Structural beams to your project for easier references. When adding a beam to a plan view, adjust the View Range so that the bottom clip plane is below the current level. This will allow the visibility of the beams in your view. Alternatively, you can also use a structural template where the view range is already adjusted to view the beams.
