Square hollow formed profiles


What this script does:

  • Contains data definitions for various combinations of variables for profiles
  • Asks you to select the forming process (hot or cold)
  • Asks you to select various values, each depending on the previously selected values
    • This allows you to enforce data quality
  • Creates a new part of a formed profile based on the values selected


*While running the script the Console window will prompt your for your data input.  Simply input your desired parameters when prompted and hit Enter on your keyboard.


# Square hollow hot and cold formed profiles according to BS/EN-10210-2:1997 and BS/EN-10219:1997
