BSI Universal Columns




I've been looking at using the new Structural Member tool - however BSI universal columns seem to be missing? BSI standard beams are available, just not the columns. Not sure whether this is a wishlist item or a bug, but either way would be great to have them!


Worth pointing out also that these are available in the 2D detailing 'wide flange tool', just not the Structural Member tool.

We have just run into the same issue in our office as well. The structural engineer specified BSI universal column for some of the steel beams and I am not sure how we could model these with the framing member. The only way I can do this is to create a symbol of the profile and use it as 'custom' profile within the framing member tool, but this is far from ideal. I would appreciate to receive comments on this from VW as soon as possible.
