I am trying to enter a 3/4x3/4x1/8 angle in the GAM. What do I have to enter for all those abbreviations (EX (ey), Flange holes, U,G, ect.)? Couldn't find anything on google or on this site.

The section is saved in a new table called USR_sectionclass in the AstorProfiles database.

I have attached a step by step of how a user section will be added to the GAM. See attached  PDF document. 


Best regards,

I am also needing to add a new profile size. The angle size L2 1/2X1 1/2X1/4 into the AISC Angle not identical.  The file that is/was attached to the previous response is no longer available.  Can you please repost?

Below is a link to the FAQ for creating a new user section. 

How is a user section created for use in Advance Steel and in Advance Design?

Thank you for the quick reply.  I am familiar with creating a user section and initially went that route.  I am wanting to get the profile size "L2 1/2X1 1/2X1/4" into the already existing list of "AISC Angle not identical".  For what ever reason this angle size is not included in the listing.
