I've created a new catalog type for light gauge steel studs. Now I want it to show as a column. How do I create that connection? To make it show here?
Hi Robert,Please have a look at this video. ( https://bentley.sharefile.com/d-sc37d2219f7c4d778 )Hope this helps.RegardsAditya
I created the catalog type by copy some lines from XML-files and change them.
If I use the place linear structural member I can see the the new catalog type
