    Advanced Structural Family

    My colleague is one who does the Advanced Structural Families course at AU and we are currently trying to decide what family we should make our example. Please post suggestions you would like to see... the submission is due by Friday so the sooner we get responses the better...

    Thanks!

      Either way or some combination... a few we have discussed are a composite slab edge, slab opening framing, and a steel column & base plate...

        I did also notice that 2012 has gusset plates in the OOTB content......

        I like the steel col & bp idea
        or maybe touch on the new featues of rebar modeling and the families associated with them.

            How about how to nest in change-able CHS/SHS/RHS cleat&end plates that change depending on the size of member you choose, and model with the 'T' cleat included? I personally hate having to sit there and model and align every single t cleat individually

              My collegue and I are not very framiliar with what that is, would you be able to post some images, families, or similar so we could take a look at it? Thanks!

                An ex-colleague of mine had these done, and had actually done them by adding lines into his catalogue files, so that the size and plate used would change depending on which member size you used. I have no idea how he did it, he showed me at the time, but it was beyond me at that point. Anyways, here is an image of the end plate + cleat I am talking about nesting into a structural framing family.

                  The above would be brilliant, There are so many variations on that type of Detail I'd love to create.
