Barry R Bowen Associates unveiled its SteelPLUS Structural Shapes R14.0 AutoCAD add-on ($129) that parametrically creates AISC/CISC/MAISC structural steel shapes in plan, elevation, section, and single-line drawings. The software includes W-shapes, channels, single and double angles, square and rectangular tubing, and pipes. A main dialog controls access to all shapes and allows multiple insertion points, layer, color, linetype, and individual control over flange and web thickness. SteelPLUS Structural Steel Shapes creates simple or complex shapes from a non-segmented polyline made into an AutoCAd block.
