Question

In the wind load generator for duopitch/troughed roof, it is not possible to click OK. How should I set up the generator so it will be possible to generate the load?

Answer

The problem is in the orientation of the model. In General Data of the model, the positive orientation of the global Z-axis is set to upwards. However, the entire model is created as if it is downwards. Therefore, the model has the foundations pointing upwards and the roof pointing downwards. Unfortunately, it does not help to simply change the orientation of the global Z-axis in this case. It is necessary to rotate the model so that the load generators can work correctly.
