  1. Please add back in the BSI universal column library to the Structural Member Tool. For completeness, it would be great to have all the profiles from the Wide Flange Tool etc available straight from the Structural Member Tool. I know you can pull out the profiles and use them as Customs in the Structural Member Tool but it's irritating and adds more steps to a simple operation. Many thanks, Seán
  2. Hi, I would like to know if everybody ese is having this problem or maybe I'm just understanding incorrectly how structural member work. When working in a file that has stories and levels adjusted, I create a structural member and when trying to adjust the Elevations (start bound, start offset, end bound, end offset) the structural member simply does not obey the levels I'm assigning to its boundaries. The element changes height inconsistently, this happens if the element has been drawn as a beam or column. I would appreciate if someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong or maybe it's just a bug and we need to wait for a service pack.
  3. Please add the ability to add labels to the Structural Member tool, just like the Framing Member tool. But with the ability to class said label, like the Column Tool.
  4. I am attempting to use the structural member tool to create steel beams and columns. When I attempt to select a shape using "select shape" with steel material selected, all the boxes are greyed out. I cannot select the shape, series or size, but I can enter a material. Currently the properties dialog box for the structural member is reporting that I currently have a Wide Flange W12x30 beam selected from AISC series but I have no way to change that. I have confirmed this issue in both an existing file and a new file. I have attached the new file and a screen shot of what I see. I also checked through the resource browser and do not see any structural profiles that I could import that made a difference. structural-member-test.vwx
  5. Hi Everyone. I've been keen to get into using the structural member tool, and so far I've picked up a couple of issues, but I might be wrong of course! Firstly, I'm in the UK and although we have a big list of Universal beams, I can't find any UK universal columns. Have a look at Tata Blue book, http://tsbluebook.steel-sci.org/EN/Browsers/Main.htm Go to, advance sections, Advance UKC on the left, and perhaps click axial compression to see the standard steel sizes.... Can't find them in VW2017 (I've got the designer edition) I also use a lot of custom profiles, such as Metsec and Kingspan purlins and side rails and would like to input these custom shapes... In the preview teaser video the gent mentioned that you could put in custom profile details, but I can't find that anywhere! Is there a csv text file or something where I can add my own custom profiles in? and are the UK Universal columns going to be added, just like the Universal Beams are? It's a bit useless without the ability to use the most important steel shapes Cheers
  6. Try this in blank document: Create a column with the structural member tool. It'll have a Z height, looks like default is layer wall height. Go to its settings dialogue, "3D attributes" tab. Change "set attributes:" from "object" to "class". The column immediately flips to zero height (even if you don't change the "class" from the default) and the "start bound" and "end bound" dropdowns in the OIP are blanked out. Is this a known bug? ***edited to add: (1) with column same seems to happen if I change "set attributes" to "class" in the 2D attributes tab, (2) the beam version of the structural member tool survives these processes. (3) setting "2D attributes" by class seems to have no effect on rendering of beam in top/plan view. Only setting the class of the object itself achieves this. (4) with beam, having changed 3d attributes to "class" I can't seem to then change them back to by "object"
  7. Hello! I think I need a complete tutorial about the news structural member tool, because there are things that seems doesn't works. I do place four columns, then I try to draw the beams, but it draw them at the bottoms of columns instead of the head. I do set the proper elevation in the dialog box, but it's the same... So, the build has some problems to fix (OXS - 327801) (to let auto join works, I have to deselect and then select it again - just for example) or I do somethings wrong and then I need some tutorial. Thank you L.
