One of the main tasks was the modeling of «user-specific profiles» because of the very specific customer requirements.
Due to the requirement of the special section we had to modify normal profiles symmetrically in flange shape.

Therefore the generation of custom profiles was very important. When all these demands were achieved, Advance Steel proved to be excellent software.
