Markus Baumgärtel Modeling | Structure RFEM RSTAB

In my model with many curved members, the coordinate systems of the members are not aligned uniformly, what can I do to improve this?


For structures with many arcs, if the coordinate systems of the members are not consistently the same (see Figure 1 -> right model), you can very easily perform the member rotation or the line rotation with a help node.
