Sorry, I do not know if I sent this query over yesterday or not!
Please could you inform me how I can darw a connection, in this case a single plate welded to the end of a channel, then connecting to another, with my own parameters, then save this as a template connection? Thank you
There is a feature in Advance Steel called : User Connection which allow the user to save a custom made connection for further use in other models. You can find additional information about it in the documentation : http://www.graitec.info/Common/Downloads/Documentation/AS-UserGuide-2010-EN-metric.pdf at page : 109. In addition, you need to make sure to place the UCS when you want to insert the saved connection in the same relative position you had it when the connection was exported.
Please send us the model and the detail drawing to check the drawing style used and the dimension line in case (you can attach the files on the forum by using the “Attach file” function available when you do a forum replay).
