Question

Can I also use the load generator for the members that do not rest in one plane?

Answer

For irregular member structures, the load generators "From Area Loads on Members via Plane" or "via Cells" can be helpful. However, both functions assume that the nodes of the members are located in one plane. In the settings of the load generators, it is possible to increase tolerances for the nodes to also detect the nodes lying outside the plane (see Figure 01). In combination with the "virtual lines," it is possible to load even more complex structures.
