Use Wide Flange to create
a closed spline shaped like a capital letter I. You can specify
the interior corners between the vertical web and horizontal flanges
of the section.
Example of Wide Flange
To create a Wide Flange spline:
- Go to the Create
panel and turn on (Shapes).
- Open the Shapes List and select Extended
- Click Wide Flange.
- Drag and release the mouse button to
define the initial size of the wide flange.
- Move the mouse and then click to define
the thickness of the walls of the wide flange.
Creation Method rollout
The Wide Flange shape
uses the standard creation methods of Center or Edge. Most spline-based
shapes share the same Creation Method parameters. For explanations,
Splines and Extended Splines.
Controls the height of the
vertical web of the wide flange.
Controls the width of
the horizontal flanges crossing the wide flange.
Controls the thickness
of the web and flanges.
- Corner Radius
Controls the radius of
the four interior corners between the vertical web and horizontal
NoteTake care when adjusting
these settings. There are no constraining relationships between
them. Therefore, it's possible to set a radius (Corner Radius) that
is greater than the length of the web or width of the flanges.
