Incomplete joist options

Recommended Posts

I apologize if this has been covered in previously. I've noticed that I have the option of choosing from a menu of standard W-section profiles for steel joists, but that option is greyed out when I specify the joist is a C-section. Robert, should I post that to BugTrack, or is that simply an incomplete feature not worthy of a BT?

C-section, as in light-gage metal framing? (I expect we're not talking OB-GYN here smile.gif

If you're talking about LGMF, then we didn't specify "standard" sizes for the simple reason that at the time this joist feature was written, we weren't aware standards for LGMF that had the same level of acceptance as cold-rolled steel sections (thank you AISC!) If such standards exist, could you point me to them?
