Saving Contours and Profiles
All closed polygons / contours, including the examples provided, are saved in the in the construction elements catalog (directory \AEC\Profiles). If required, you can create in the normal way your own sub-directories to save these files. The files have their own file format *.profile. The directory in the catalog is called ‘Profiles’, as is the folder in the preview. These files can be accessed in the dialog of sweep solids, or be simply inserted and positioned when planning using drag and drop. Profiles are then inserted as 2D polygons and are immediately available for creating extrusion or rotation solids.
When a user-created contour or closed polygon is selected, it can be saved as a profile in the catalog over the context menu opened with a right mouse click.
