Import Standard Steel Profiles in ARCHICAD

Ken

If you work regularly with Structural Steel components and exchange data with Structural software using IFC - you might find it useful to use the Standard Profiles for Columns and Beams that are available within ARCHICAD.

The database contains national standards for 32 localizations… even if you work outside your home country, there is still a high chance you will find the Profile you need!  Within each national standard there are hundreds of options available for a range of geometry types: I/H, C/U, T, L, Rectangular and Circular.
