Generate Connection Plate Drawings

We have newly developed parametric connections for Hotrolled steel profiles.  This article will show you how create drawings for the connection plates themselves.

This article uses a pre-added Hot-rolled column and beam structure with all connections added previously.  A frame line drawing also needs to have been created previously.

  1. Goto the Output tab in the ribbon.

  2. Click into the Schedule command from the automatically activated Profile tab in the ribbon.

  3. Choose the Panel Connector group type type from the Select Group window.

  4. The Piece Schedule Parameters window will appear.  Make sure the Drawings section is checked on.

  5. Now pick a location for the schedule, if this was checked on in the previous window.

  6. The drawings and labels will then be generated.
