Standard Profiles

In ARCHICAD, the Options > Import Standard Steel Profile command brings up the Profile Database, from which you can import profile shapes and sizes, which are listed by their country-specific code numbers.
Hint: Standard profiles can serve as the basis for creating additional, standard-shaped (e.g. I-shaped) profiles that have a custom name or additional details (such as a fillet radius) – use the Profile Manager to duplicate and edit a standard profile.
Note: When placing the structural Column or Beam, note that its insertion point is the center of the object’s bounding box. However, an additional hotspot is located at the element’s center of gravity.
