Hello, I was wondering how many people use SW for structural steel detailing? I am new to SW and having a hard time getting things set up with drawings and bill of materials. I can model just fine. Its when I have to put it to paper is when I have a problem. It just seem like its way to much to work labeling all the parts to get the bill to look right. I am in the USA using feet & inchs which doesn't seem like SW likes very much.

So what are the secrets? Do I need a third party program to really make it work? Any advise or other fourms for SW steel detailing out there that I should look at? Any advise would be helpful. Thanks Michael
