I'd like to know if there is a way to calculate the self weight of a group of profiles, for example the weight of all columns of a structure or the weight of all the beams positioned at a certain level.


Thank you

1. Create a new load case

2. Define self-weight load on the selected part of the model only

3. Calculate model

4. Check total sum of vertical reactions

Hi Giorgio,


probably you only need a list of weights of profiles, in this case you can use the table of quantities
