Simpson Strong Tie Plug-in

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if Simpson Strong Tie has a plug-in for their hardware?  If not Simpson is there another manufacturer of framing hardware that provides a plug-in into Vectorworks?

@DLBurke I don't know of any.  Years ago, I had translated the Simpson library into a symbol library for VW.  I've back-saved it to v.2017 and attached it to this post.  It's about 180mb, so not a small file. 


While it's not as smart as a plugin, you can access most all of their hardware  as symbols - which I've grouped into folders. 


One word of caution - it's several years out of date, so newer products won't be included, but it still works for most needs.
