I would like to know how I can insert new standards in the Structural Member category.


How do I enter new usages / Member Types / New Shapes?


I can not locate in the root of the software where I can put this new information, neither the own settings that comes with VectorWorks.


I’m using Vectorworks 2017 SP3

@Suporte TécnicoHi As i understand the program file is located at C:\Program Files\Vectorworks 2017\Libraries\Defaults\Structural Shapes (Windows)

There are only 10 sections in the drawing and  the various sizes must be part of the script for the plugin. (But stand corrected)

If you want to add more sections dont put them here place them in either a User folder or a Workgroup folder, that way they wont be overwritten when you next upgrade Vectorworks.
