Modeling | Structure RFEM RSTAB

Is it possible to combine two or more members (lying on one line) into a single member?

The generated intermediate nodes should be deleted afterwards.

Answer

In RSTAB or RFEM, there is a simple function to combine several members into one member and delete the intermediate nodes.

To do this, right-click the unnecessary intermediate node. In the context menu, point to "Delete Node," and then select "Merge Joined Lines/Members."
