Good morning. I'm currently trying to integrate my designs from Robot Structural Analysis into Autocad Structural Detailing.
As many steel structural designers know, almost every single structure must have braces, whether they are X shaped or V shaped or whatever, they are completely necessary for structural stability issues. Also these braces are not always double angles, sometimes they are double channels, IPE or HEA sections, hollow structural sections, etc; and most of all, industrial designers demand all bolted connections. I have found that this issue is not supported on Autocad Structural Detailing, and the options it gives for bracing connections are completely limited.
My question regards the creation of such connections with ASD, specially the following to be specific:
Is it even possible?
It's absolutely possible manually designing all the pieces of the joint otherwise you can use the bracing marco command and edit the result to obtain your bracing model.
Greetings at all
