Do you need to add custom structural shape profiles to the User Shape catalog?
Use a 2D profile and the User Shape Manager to add custom structural shapes to the User Shape library.
The User Shape Manager is used to add special or custom structural shapes to your OpenBuildings Designer database. These can be associated with a variety of materials including steel, concrete and timber, but will be designated to be placed with either steel tools, concrete tools or both. User Shapes are easily defined with a closed 2D shape and then added to the library. There are delivered libraries of both steel and concrete profiles. These are parametric and can be used to generate additional shape profiles of different dimensions. Once added they are available for placement from the Shape Library.
