I have a project with many connections using a WT shear connection for a beam to an HSS column.  Is there a way to create a custom connection like this?

Hello again-  I've come up with a reasonably simple connection that worked for all same size beams.  Before I did my next batch of beams of a different size, I modified the custom connection I created to match the new conditions and saved it.  This new custom connection is easy to use.  Thanks!  It would still be nice to have a true parametric WT connection with the same flexibility as a shear tab connection or angle connection.  Hopefully, that will be considered for future releases.

When you use an existing intellingent connections, after modifying it, you still have the option to turn it into a custom connection while still having the intelligence which gives you a double functionality with that connection. In case you did modify it and keep the intelligence, all the parametric options will be available to you even after you turn it into a custom connection.

thank you.
