Single Tubular Bracing

Hello,

 

I want to create a single piece of tubular bracing, with gussets on either end. See the attached image for the bracing centre lines. What is the best way to achieve this?

 

Thank you

Ryan

Check the movie.

Generally it needs to be specified as NOT Crossed bracing in Diagonals tab.

any luck I can do this with a W beam at the middle to the cross bracing with a gusset plate on top and bottom rather than the gusset in the middle. It seems that the cross bracing tool is not what i need, but i figured i would ask.
