Since the old STEEL MDL application is not supported in MicroStation CONNECT Edition, you can use advanced Parametric Modeling features to create steel sections as per your requirements. In this blog, we will create a parametric steel C-Section cell as an example. Item types that contain additional information such as make, grade of steel, type of section, etc. can also be attached to this parametric cell.

Based on this example other Steel Sections like L, T, TS, W, Pipe, etc. can be created with variations and used as needed.
Follow the steps below to create a Parametric C-Section:
These extruded 3d cells can be inserted in any design as desired. Refer to the video below.Similarly, parametric sections can be created for other Steel Sections like L, T, TS, W, Pipe, etc. Refer to sample DGN.
