Valley Beams

I am designing a large church building and am trying to create a steel beam configuration for the valley beams where two roofs join.  Both roofs are 12/12 pitch but due to the different widths of the building where the side transept join the main roof line I have valley.  The roof beams are steel and are 24 inches W sections.  I am using CA x11.  Any help would be most appreciated.  Thanks.

Chief has the ability to designate a beam as a "Steel-I"  (W) however this is not particularly accurate as for web and flange thicknesses.

 

I usually extrude a p-solid from an accurately drawn profile and then if you need to model details it can be converted to a solid and trimmed or drilled using Boolean Operations.

 

I assume you are working with a qualified engineer on this project unless of course you are one.
