The profile catalog contains information on profiles, their rules and types, and the analysis and design properties of the profiles. Profiles are displayed in a hierarchical tree grouped according to rules.
By default, the profile catalog 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 editor or .clb files to create new parametric profiles.
Tekla Structures stores the profile catalog information in the profdb.bin file.
