Hi,

I have to design same section. Now i know where to find that window to define parameters of the section. My question is about design: i will recieve only appropriate results of initial forces (Mx, My etc) or i can design the profile itself in steel design module? I mean that i can easily vary the wall and web thikness, width and so on or its not possible?

Thanks.
