Automated frame design


Simplify the design of structural frames with automated commands. Use the specialized frame design tools to:

  • Insert frame members from a library of thousands of standard profiles.
  • Offset or rotate the frame profile as you wish, relative to a selected line.
  • Apply trims and end treatments to multiple frame components at once.

To analyze the performance of frames, just add your constraints and specify where to apply the loads.
