Cosme Asseya Modeling | Loading RFEM RSTAB

When I create a new member, the existing member is divided into 2 or by adding a node on a member to create a new perpendicular.
Is there an option to prevent the members from being split automatically?


The operation of the software makes it possible to consider for the descent of loads in RSTAB/RFEM and the checks in the additional modules the following types of member:
  • simple bar : the bar has two knots, one at the beginning and one at the end of the bar
  • Multiple simple bars can be grouped together to form a continuous bar or set of bars
  • continuous bar without intermediate cutting at nodes
Both options lead to the same results (internal efforts, constraints, etc ...)
To prevent the automatic division of the existing bar, it is necessary to disable the option "Automatically connect the lines / bars" in the context menu accessible by a right click in the modeling window.
