3.3.9: Cross Section Range Selector
The cross section library that comes with Karamba3D contains roughly 22 000 profiles. In order to reduce the amount of information the list can be shortened by applying selection criteria on it using the “Cross Section Range Select” component (see fig. 18.104.22.168). The input-plugs “maxH” and “maxW” let you limit the list according to maximum cross section height and width. The submenu which unfolds when clicking on the black “select”-bar offers further options for narrowing the search: country of origin, general shape and family name.

In case one does not supply a list of cross sections at the “CroSec” input-plug, the cross section table that comes with Karamba3D is used by default.
