here we go...Not everything that crossed my mind but it's a start...
I currently cheat to roll plates by making a custom profile like flat bar but wide like sheet. Then use the "bent profiles".
Fix Grating bill of materials issues.
I posted elswhere on this forum about this. If the grate is 12x12 and it is rotated about the Z axis, it doesn't represent the length correctly.
Utility to add custom material Grades
I get by doing some hacking in xml files but it shouldn't be like that.
Add functionallity to the bent profiles by allowing the use of a 3Dpoly or Spline.
Function to assign profile start rotation angle and end rotation angle would be nice.
Add more fastener types
Expansion and Wedge anchor selection. I am currently putting a round bar in place to keep track of them.
Most other steel drafting packages can provide navisworks with an IFC file. For what? More member info. eg.. Part Mark, Part Type, Weights, Sequencing info, Status info, mainly for me Part Marks. When I'm coordinating with other trades, they don't have a reference to what part they have issues with.
