Specifies the properties for the select designed member.

Category

Select the properties that you want to view for the member. Only Standard properties are available for designed members.

Show Dimensional Legend

Displays a graphic indicating the different dimensions that can be specified for the selected designed member.

Standard

Name

Displays the name of the designed member. The designed member name is based on the Name Rule selection. To type a new name for the designed member, select User Defined in the Name Rule box, and then type a name for the designed member in the Name box.

Name Rule

Specify the naming rule to use to name this designed member. You can select one of the listed rules or select User Defined and type the designed member name in the Name box.

Parent System

Specifies the name of the parent system. You can define new systems in the Systems and Specifications task.

Section Standard

Specifies the section library from which you selected the section name. Sections are defined in the reference data.

Cardinal Point

Displays the relative position of the structural cross-section to the member placement line. Nine cardinal positions (1 -9) are available. The location of cardinal points 10 (center-of-gravity) and 15 (shear center) depend on the section shape. The local z-axis of the member and the center-of-gravity point of the section define cardinal points 11 and 14. The local y-axis of the member and the center-of-gravity point of the section define cardinal points 12 and 13. Cardinal points 10 through 15 are unavailable for designed members or cans.

Angle

Defines the angle by which the section is rotated about the member axis.

Reflect

Reflects or mirrors the cross-section about the member's local z-axis. This parameter affects both symmetric and asymmetric sections. An example of when to use this option is when you want the flanges of a channel section to point in the opposite direction.

Type category

Specifies the type category of the member, such as a beam or a column. The available member properties change depending on the member type category that you select. You can define a custom member type category by editing the Structural Member Type list in the Catalog task.

Type

Specifies the type of member, such as a beam or column. The available member properties change depending on the member type that you select. This property is a hierarchical child of Type Category. To change the options on the list, edit the Structural Member Type select list in Catalog.

Priority

Specifies the priority assigned to the object system. Smart 3D uses the priority to group objects. To change the options on the list, edit the Structural Member Priority select list in Catalog.

Centroid X

Displays the location of the centroid along the local x-axis. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Centroid Y

Displays the location of the centroid along the local y-axis. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Moment of Inertia about X (Ixx)

Displays the moment of inertia for the section's local x-axis. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Moment of Inertia about Y (Iyy)

Displays the moment of inertia for the section's local y-axis. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Warping Statical Moment (Sw)

Displays the warping statical moment. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Elastic Section Modulus about X (Sxx)

Displays the section modulus for the section's local x-axis. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Elastic Section Modulus about Y (Syy)

Displays the section modulus for the section's local y-axis. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Torsional Moment of Inertia (J)

Displays the torsional moment of inertia for the section. This property is read- only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Warping Constant (Cw)

Displays the warping constant for the section. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Flexural Constant (H)

Displays the flexural constant for the section. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Polar Radius of Gyration about Shear Center (ro)

Displays the polar radius of gyration about the shear center. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Radius of Gyration about X axis (Rxx)

Displays the radius of gyration for the section's local x-axis. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Radius of Gyration about Y axis (Ryy)

Displays the radius of gyration for the section's local y-axis. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Radius of Gyration about Principle XY (Rxy)

Displays the radius of gyration about the principle xy-axis. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Plastic Section Modulus about X (Zxx)

Displays the plastic section modulus for the section's local x-axis. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Plastic Section Modulus about Y (Zyy)

Displays the plastic section modulus for the section's local y-axis. This property is read-only. To edit this value, you need to edit the cross-section's properties in Catalog or in the corresponding workbook.

Is Hollow

Displays True if the cross-section is hollow, such as a tube or can. Displays False if the cross-section is solid, such as a bar, or open, such as an I-beam.

Is Symmetric about X

Displays True if the cross-section is symmetric about the local x-axis of the cross-section.
