When calculating a connection using the FRAME‑JOINT Pro add-on module, a message appears sayng that the value is out of the valid range (existing value: 160, minimum value 200). What does this message mean?


This message is usually displayed in the case that the member dimensions do not correspond.
In the example model, the beam has a flange width of 200 mm and the column support of 160 mm.

This joint is not valid in the add-on module as the flange width of the column should be at least as large as the flange width of the structural element to be connected. As soon as the cross-sections are defined according to this rule, the connection design can also be performed.
