Specifies the properties for the cross-section of a standard member part.

Section Standard

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

Member Section Name

Defines the cross-section for the member. If you know the section name, type it in. You can use the asterisk [*] character wildcard to see all sections that contain that text. For example, type W10X* to see all W10X sections in the catalog. Select More to browse the catalog for the section to use. Sections are defined in the reference data. See Structural Reference Data Overview for more information about 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 would be when you want the flanges of a channel section to point in the opposite direction. The Reflect property is not available when editing members that have Seated, Flush, or Centerline frame connections.
