Creating Beam Profiles
The custom feature called Beams comes with a limited set of steel profiles. As requested (by many), I've created the video below to detail the step-by-step process of how to create and add your own profiles.
This video refers to the original method of creating custom beam profiles. This method still works, but in the latest version of the Beams feature, you can now also select a sketch from another Document and use it directly. A video of how to do this can be seen halfway down the page here. This saves you having to create profiles using the method below and also means you don't have to maintain your own personal copy of the feature.
