It's easy to use:

Drawing every steel shape you need for your structural layouts is a waste of valuable time.

This library can be easily loaded into AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT's menu bar for quick access. There's no need to browse through folders every time you need to insert a steel shape. Its user-friendly interface allows you to simply point and click to choose from a wide range of steel shapes.

How it works:

Once loaded in AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT, "Steel Shapes Library v3.0" will appear in the menu bar.

Step 1: Choose the steel shape you need from the pull-down menu.

Step 2: A dialog box will appear on your screen. Select the view of the steel shape you need, then click OK to insert the shape in your drawing.
For 3D drawings, select the shape labeled "3D Extrude" and insert it in your drawing. Next, use the EXTRUDE command on that shape to create a 3D solid model to the desired length.
For side and top views, left mouse click on the shape after you insert it, then use the stretch dynamic feature to stretch it to the desired length.

Details about the blocks:
All steel shapes are current with the AISC Steel Construction Manual, 13th Edition.
Each shape is drawn to 1:1 scale on layer 0.
Top, middle and bottom insertion points can be selected on most shape end views.
