    Question CHS Horizontal offset

    Is there a way to add a instance horizontal offset parameter to a circular hollow section (CHS) ??

    You can add the offset to all the other framing beams but I can't figure out how to add 1 to the CHS. I have CHS vertical bracing throughout my project & I want to offset them from centre of column 50mm

    Cheers

    You can copy, rename, and edit the circular hollow section family, and add your own offset parameter to new family, this will offset
    location of bracing member but leave the reference on gridline. be sure to copy the text file and rename to match your offset brace family.
    You can open the out of box double angle member family and study how this is done, this family has a offset parameter to provide gap between
    double angles.
