There are some Parametric Part under 2D Hardware/Beams/  profiles that ship with TC Pro.
Which are either Metric or Imperial depending on what your model space units are set to.

If you are meaning Beam Analysis the we have a plug in for that which is here.

Hi Dave
In Metric setup, it stays Imperial though.

IDX - looks good - if they give a good discount I will buy it.

Try starting with a metric template.

Hi Dave

Straight from the template - nothing do. Looks like TC slipped this one though, which is not so nice - fast and quick way down the drain.

You're right triplex,
I use Engineering powertools  (free or unregistrated) conversion tool to calculate from Metric to Imperial.
The conversion tool is free for download @ http://www.pwr-tools.com/download.html

I hope this helps you a bit.

What I did see is that if you explode and then do the X, Y dimensions, it gets there some how.
