Max2DFrame is a DCL/AutoLISP program for AutoCAD 14/2000/2000i/2002 that allows the user to parametrically build 2D structural frames by creating and inserting any structural steel shapes from a user edited ASCII text file.
Max2DFrame has an editing capability that allows user to edit the length of an existing Parametric Frame Item. In addition, user can associate frame items into groups, so every time the user modifies the length for one of the associated items, the changes are also reflected with all items for the associated group.
By editing an ASCII database text file the user can define custom shapes, add part numbers and add local distributor costs.
With just one window selection Max2DFrame provides a complete Bill of Material with total length of an individual size, total weight and total cost of the Parametric Structure. The Bill of Material can be exported to a text file for further processing.
