Version 3.6.4 - 06.08.2024
- Added the following additional Wide Flange (W) beams to the beam module: W10X49, W10X54, W10X60, W10X68, W10X77, W10X88, W10X100, W10X112, W12X45, W12X50, W12X53, W12X58, W12X65, W12X72, W12X79, W12X87, W12X96, W12X106, W12X120, W12X136, W12X152, W12X170, W12X190, W30X90, W30X99, W30X108.
- Added the following Simpson Strong-Tie heavy girder hangers to the beam hanger library: HGUS2.75/10, HGUS2.75/12, HGUS2.75/14, HGUS3.25/10, HGUS3.25/12, HGUS412, HGUS5.25/10, HGUS5.25/12, HGUS5.5/8, HGUS5.5/10, HGUS5.5/12, HGUS5.5/14, HGUS7.25/8, HGUS7.25/10, HGUS7.25/12, HGUS7.25/14.
- Allowed the use of a period "." in custom beam hanger library names.



I still need to add more from this series (about another 30 hangers) to complete it and then there is also the HHUS series of hangers that need to be (modeled) and added.

- HHUS26-2
- HHUS28-2
- HHUS210-2
- HHUS210-3
- HHUS210-4
- HHUS410
- HHUS46
- HHUS48
- HHUS5.5/10
- HHUS7.25/10

Note that all of these hangers are now available on Simpson's website as IFC files which can be brought directly into SketchUp. However the files are generally a bit polygon heavy and are deeply nested in order to comply with IFC standards. What I am doing is using these 3D models as templates and generating my own low poly dimensionally accurate models which I then include as part of the standard (included) library for the beam module. The idea is to have these at your finger tips and not to be hassled with going out and having to download files and cleaning them up etc...

Double sliders are kind of interesting windows.



Sometimes I forget how cool it is to be able to create something like this in SketchUp and have it animate like it does. Can I say I love my job?
