Graphical Assignment of Cross-Sections to Members

Tips & Tricks

During the optimization of a structure, it can happen that the individual cross‑sections have to be modified several times. This can be done very quickly by using the function “Assign Graphically to Members” which is available under “Cross‑Sections” in Project Navigator - Data.

Thus, all members in the model are visually split into three parts (member start, entire member, member end). Then, you can left‑click the member parts whose cross‑section has been modified.
