A bracket system can have a plane that intersects the supports. This type of bracket is created when Coincident Plane , Offset from a Plane , Angle from plane , Plane by Point and Vector , Plane by Three Points , or Plane by Vectors Normal are selected for Select Plane.

The following examples show the general support selection sequence:

1 Support (1S) Bracket

Typically a profile with the bracket on the flange and web.

2 Support (2S) Bracket

Examples of supports include:

  • Two plate systems

  • A plate system and an edge reinforcement

  • A rib connection, using a plate system and the web of a profile
