I have several crossing members modeled in my structural system, but they are still not connected with each other. How can I easily create a node at the connection point?
You can access it by clicking the menu
Edit > Model Data > Members > Connect Lines/Members
or by using the corresponding toolbar button.
Then, you can draw a window across the location of the connection to create a node between the intersecting members.
