Beam moment of inertia

Hey there

 

Is it possible to define a custom moment of interia for a beam? I do have fairly complex profiles and I want to avoid to geometrically model the cross section. In other FEA tools, it is possilbe to define beam elements just by two points and the inertia's with respect to the local element coordinate system.

 

Does Solidworks Simulation offer anything like that?
