Generate Hot-roll Structure Drawings

We have newly developed parametric connections for Hotrolled steel profiles.  This article will show you how create individual beam drawings for each member of the structure.


This article uses a pre-added Hot-rolled column and beam structure with all connections added previously.

  3. Labels will automatically be added in the 2d drawing only, so switch to this if not already active.


  4. Select the labels to generate the drawings for.
