Why are the wind and snow load generators disabled (grayed out) in my model?


The prerequisite for both generators is the use of the 3D model type. For a 2D model type, the program does not have the corresponding geometrical parameters.

The model type is defined within the General Data of the model. The corresponding dialog box can be opened in the Data navigator by right-clicking "Model Data" and then using the shortcut menu option "General Data" (see Figure 1).

If changing the model type, it may be necessary to adjust the modelling (supports, joints).
