Wieland Götzler Add-on Modules ALUMINUM STEEL EC3 RF-ALUMINUM RF-STEEL EC3

Is there a way how to prepare this EC3 buckling check without setting the intermediate support manually ? Or is there a workaround that can speed up this work?

Answer

Unfortunately not. Intermediate supports and nodal supports have to be set manually. The default configuration for effective lengths is 1,0*member length and for set of members, one nodal support with definition u_y' and phi_x' is defined on each side of the set of member.
To speed up the process of defining nodal supports, you can pick more nodes in one step by using the highlighted function in the attached picture.
