AxisVM provides preloaded cross-section libraries, that contain the most frequently used steel shapes and concrete cross-sections, and allow you to create standard cross-section property sets that you can use over and over again in many different models.
The libraries includes products of manufacturers worldwide.
Lets you define and save cross-sectional property sets or load them from a cross-section library. The beam, truss, and rib elements require a cross-section. The properties are related to the element’s local coordinate system. If you delete a cross-section property set, the definition of the elements to which it was assigned will also be deleted. The lines will not be deleted. You must enter values for all properties. Cross section properties are defined in the coordinate system of a truss / beam / rib element.

The Cross-section Editor allows you to edit thin and thick walled cross-sections. You can use parametric circular, rectangular, ring and polygonal shapes, or any shape listed in the cross-section libraries to edit composite cross-sections. The shapes used to build a new cross-section are referred to as components, and have to be of the same material. You can translate, rotate, mirror, copy or move the selected components at any time during the editing. When a component is placed to its location graphically, the principal axes and the cross-sectional properties of the composite cross-section are computed.
