Where can I find/load Z-profiles into ASD database to use it as a purlins/girt profile?

Anyone know how to make connections between rafters/beams and laped Z-purlins?

Thanks.

Hi,

The standard connection that I know near to what I see in your attached file is Purlin-rafter:

Select the macro: Purlin-rafter

Select rafter and press Enter

Select purlin and press Enter

Define connection

See the file joined.

Cheers,

Do you have another solution for this?

In the virtual event a few weeks ago Jack Johnson said to me that you have some videos to explain a bit more to use better these connections

Sorry but this a standard/automatic connection but I having problems to standarize this with ASD.

Please see in the attached.

Thanks

Sorry Jad,

I´ve  trying to connect a tapered beam to Z purlin but ASD dont recognozis the beam as a valid object.

In your example the hot rolled profiles are idetified as a valid member.

Thanks

I'm sorry, many time ago I've moved from ASD to other programs that they are more flexible than this. I only use ASD for simple details.
