How to create structural shape in Bricscad?
Bricscad Platinum has X-Hardware library included. You can find shapes, bolts, nuts, washers and other parts inside.
To draw structural shape, just call XHARDWARE command, choose any kind of object, standard, size and length. After picking of insertion point on screen requested shape will be created.
You can edit inserted X-Solid object at any time by calling XSOLIDEDIT command. All parameters are available to edit, even upgrade of wide flange to any other kind of other object from X-Hardware library even bolt or nut.
Look at sample file I created with X-Hardware in minutes when tested X-Solids.
