For an imperfection I receive the warning 12211 saying that members have different rotations. What can I do?


Imperfections are applied parallel to the local y-axis or z-axis of a member. When a set of members is selected as the factor for the imperfection, all members contained in the set of members should be aligned identically and the member set should be straight.
To check whether the members lie parallel to each other, it is possible to use the "Select Special"> "Members"> "Parallel to Member" functions. Please watch the video.
If a member is not parallel, check and align the coordinates of the nodes, if necessary. Provided that no other members are connected to the nodes, it is also possible to simply pull the end nodes of the non-parallel member towards each other.
