The distance of the straight line between the beginning and the end of the arc.
The distance between the top of the arc and the diameter.
A curve where almost all of the elements are curved with multiple planar events. 3D models are best to visualize the final shape.
A curve that changes from a 2-dimensional plane to a 3-dimensional plane. Harder to visualize and describe on drawings than a simple curve.
A process where light gauge steel members are manufactured by rolling or shaping the steel after it is cold.
An L-shaped short piece of metal (normally with a 90 degree bend). It is typically used for connections.
A structural steel section with a cross section in the form of a ""C,"" consisting of a web, flange and lip.
Software originally developed for the aerospace industry and now used by architects to display and rotate a 3-D model and output the data to CAD software. Radius Track fabricates track and studs using the NC file from the CAD software.
