Tips & Tricks
The cross‑section properties software SHAPE‑THIN allows you to model corners of cross‑sections in full detail.
- The “Smooth Corner” function fills the area with an element and connects it by a null element automatically. For this, simply click the corner.
- The “Create Round or Angled Corner” function provides the option to round or angle the corner. For this, define the rounding radius and click both elements.
