Thanks again, Mark.

Could you expand on some of the additional, default parameters shown on the Parameter Mapping window of the Structural Shape Authoring command?

Are these parameters used for the Beam and Column Calculator and/or is this a way to propogate legacy structural data?

The only parameters that are 100% necessary for Frame Generation are marked in yellow. If you know the additional properties you can input them in and then they can be used for Frame Analysis as well as the Beam Deflection and Loading Calculator.

This is cool, but I just want to create the profile to cope beams from the existing content center.

How is the notch profile set up and implemented?


This is unfortunately for new members to the Content Center only. The existing shapes in the default library do not have any Notching profiles on them and would require individual attention otherwise with iFeatures or manual cutting (all of which throws off your G_L parameter for length in BOM reporting). This makes any mods to the original CC items a nightmare to lengthen and then cut away material.

To do it just right you will have to re-add all new members with your notching style in mind. Lot of work, but depending on how you use Inventor and how much you use Frame Gen, it could be a good ROI.
