How do you control the level of resolution or segmentation of curved objects? Some object types have GDL parameters to control this, such as the 'Cross-Section Resolution' parameter in the guardrail tool, but there does not appear to be a similar parameter in tools like the beam tool (version 22).

ie: If I create a complex profile with a 90 degree filleted corner, in a beam extrusion using this profile I get segmentation at 45 degrees...so a 90 degree arc is modeled as 2 flat segments. However, using the exact same profile in a guardrail I have the option to choose my level of resolution.

Is there a project wide parameter that controls this for elements that don't have built-in GDL control?
