The profile  editor lets us create cross section profiles to be used with the create

Beam, Column commands.


It appears as a Section profile browser organized by geometry as in the image.


As soon we select a profile the parameters are editable

in the profile attributes  window and its geometry is updated.

All dimensions  can be input in the current model units  or

enforced to  use  custom units example:


Input :


50 cm   =  50 cm converted to current model units

50 mm =   50 mm converted to current units

150 in  =   150  inches converted to current units

(200+120*0.5) cm =  expression in centimeters converted to current units
