Customize the profile catalog
The profile catalogcatalog that displays profiles and information on the profiles
In addition to the available profiles in the respective Tekla Structures environment, the user can add fixed or parametric user-defined profiles to the profile catalog. It is also possible to import profiles to the profile catalog.

Design properties vary depending on the analysis application that is used.
Design properties may be applied to the entire model or to individual objects.
For example, buckling length is a design property.

contains standard, environment-specific profiles and generic parametric profiles. You can add, modify, import, export, and delete profiles.
You can define your own user-defined profiles, which can be either fixed or parametric. Use the profile catalog to create new fixed profiles, either from scratch or by copying an existing one. Use the sketch editortool that is used for creating and editing parametric user-defined profiles
or .clb files to create new parametric profiles.
Tekla Structures stores the profile catalog information in the profdb.bin file.
