When defining the cross-section, standardized and repeatedly arranged cross-section parts (like longitudinal stiffeners in steel and composite sections) can be easily placed in the section. The profile can be manually generated in a separate cross section or can be imported from the user section library. Once the profile geometry is defined the position and the number of profiles is set and the product automatically places the profiles along the cross-section edge. The connection between the profile and the cross-section edge is automatically adapted by extruding or trimming the profile

  • Quick modeling of stiffeners along an edge
  • Easy modeling of thin walled sections
  • Fewer number of parametric lines necessary
