It's easy to use:

Drawing each and 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 for Mac's Content Palette for quick access. There's no need to browse through folders every time you need to insert a steel shape. It's user-friendly interface allows you to simply point and click to choose from a wide range of steel shapes.

How it works:

Once installed, all symbols can be accessed from AutoCAD for Mac's Content Palette.

Step 1: Choose a category of symbols from the library list
Step 2: The Content Palette will show all of the available symbols in that category. Holding your mouse over a symbol will show you it's name. You can also search for a steel shape name in the window at the bottom of the palette. Choose the symbol you would like to insert and drag it into your drawing.
Details about the blocks:

This library was created using the dimensions you'll find in the "AISC Manual of Steel Construction, Load & Resistance Factor Design Volume 1, Second Edition".

You'll be able to select from a wide range of steel shapes, each drawn at a scale of 1:1 and on layer zero with "Bylayer" attributes. Once inserted, simply rotate the shape into position and it will be to scale and will take on the characteristics of your current layer settings.
All shapes are drawn as closed polylines or regions. After you insert a steel shape, explode it, then extrude it to create 3D steel layouts.
Crosshatching is not included with the blocks because it is usually on a separate layer and color.  The insertion point of each shape is at a midpoint common to each particular steel shape.
