Hi Sangsen,

 

Could you elaborate on this question?  In another question, you mentioned beam. Are you trying to get a section of a structural beam?

HI Mikako,

 

   Thanks for your response, Yes you are correct I am trying to get Section details of structural beams. From that section details I need to group "I section" and Asymmetric  beams.

 

Thanks

Dear Sangsen,

 

You should definitely check out the REX Content Genewrator, if you have not already done so.

 

It provides some very powerful tools for analysing and also creating structural content, including beam sections:

I hope this helps.

 

Best regards,
