Sorry, I do not know if I sent this query over yesterday or not!

Please could you inform me how I can darw a connection, in this case a single plate welded to the end of a channel, then connecting to another, with my own parameters, then save this as a template connection?
Thank you

There is a feature in Advance Steel called : User Connection which allow the user to save a custom made connection for further use in other models. You can find additional information about it in the documentation : at page : 109. In addition, you need to make sure to place the UCS when you want to insert the saved connection in the same relative position you had it when the connection was exported.

Thank you for your recent help, I have another one for you if you can kindly assist.

I have drawn a steel structure made from channel section.

All has been drawn with the position being centre (on axis), however if I have hole marks centre on the flange, when I produce a fabrication drawing the dimension line is taken from the axis.

How do i turn the access line off before I produce the fabrication drawing or change this around so the dimension line can be from the edge or centre of the steel?

Hopefully you understand my question, thanking you.

Please send us the model and the detail drawing to check the drawing style used and the dimension line in case (you can attach the files on the forum by using the "Attach file" function available when you do a forum replay).
