How to Change Angle of Beam End Faces

For end faces at free angles, use the following trick:

1.Draw your Beam.

2.Set Beam thickness to zero in the Beam Settings dialog box in order to draw a second (virtual) Beam.

3.Draw the zero thickness Beam starting from the end of the reference axis of the first Beam at the desired angle as shown in the figure below.
