Kindly make provision for Hat section with Lips( straight lip and inclined lip) in the section database. Please make it such a way that if we enter the depth, width, thickness and give "generate" and all the properties gets generated automatically.

    Thank you for providing the spreadsheet, but again I would like to understand where the profiles are manufactured and what determines the sizes? Are these provided in a publication? If so then please share this and we can look to adding a database. Or are you suggesting that they are manufactured with any dimension, so you are looking for a tool to define the shape parametrically which we provide for other shapes in the Section Wizard module, called Freesketch e.g.

    Thanks for replying. Kindly see the pic attached below, where we have a hat section with lips. a) straight lips b) lips inclined at 45degree... And we were able to generate the parameters for Hat section ( in excel attached) maybe it will help to work for "Hat section with Lips". Thanks

    Thank you for posting this idea. However, perhaps you can be more specific and clarify if you are referring to profiles from a particular publication. If not, then are you looking to define them parametrically? If parametrically defined, then perhaps you can share a typical example.
