|This task provides brief explanations of the parameters associated with sections.|
|If you need to build a new section (parametric or resolved), it is recommended that you start from an existing section and save it using the save as new command. This ensures that all the mandatory parameters are created and available for editing. Brief meanings of the parameters are provided below.|
|1.||Mandatory for structure
ProfileType = This parameter is used to define the profile type (i.e. Tee, Pipe) and allows the user to apply the Create\Modify command of the Catalog Editor workbench to integrate his resolved sections in the catalog.
FamilyName = If the user uses the Create\Modify command, then ComponentFamily derives its name from this parameter, and this parameter in turns derives its name from the parametric CATPart name. For instance if the parametric CATPart name was AISC_Bulb_BigScale, the FamilyName parameter would be Bulb_BigScale and consequently the ComponentFamily name would be Bulb_BigScale.
CatalogName = This parameter derives its name from the parametric CATPart name and defines the standard. For instance if the parametric CATPart name was AISC_Bulb_BigScale, then the CatalogName parameter would be assigned to AISC.
PartNumber = This parameter derives its value from the PartNumber column defined in the design table.
SectionName = This parameter derives its value from the PartNumber column defined in the design table.
