Type: Autodesk.Revit.DB Document
The document in which the new BeamSystem is created.
Type: System.Collections.Generic IList Curve
The profile of the BeamSystem.
Type: Autodesk.Revit.DB SketchPlane
The work-plane for the BeamSystem.
Type: Autodesk.Revit.DB XYZ
The direction is the direction of the BeamSystem.
Type: System Boolean
Whether the BeamSystem is 3D. If the BeamSystem is 3D, the sketchPlane must be a level, otherwise an exception will be thrown.

Return Value

If successful, a new BeamSystem object will be returned.


Exception Condition
Autodesk.Revit.Exceptions ArgumentException SketchPlane is not valid for BeamSystem creation. -or- The input profile contains at least one helical curve and is not supported for this operation. -or- The profile curves must be in the sketch plane.
Autodesk.Revit.Exceptions ArgumentNullException A non-optional argument was NULL
Autodesk.Revit.Exceptions InvalidOperationException The BeamSystem is 3D, but the SketchPlane is not a level.
Autodesk.Revit.Exceptions ModificationForbiddenException The document is in failure mode: an operation has failed, and Revit requires the user to either cancel the operation or fix the problem (usually by deleting certain elements). -or- The document is being loaded, or is in the midst of another sensitive process.
Autodesk.Revit.Exceptions ModificationOutsideTransactionException The document has no open transaction.
