My system contains several crossing members, but they are not connected yet. What is the easiest way to create a node at the connection location?


The function you are looking for is "Connect Lines / Members." You can select them with the menu item
Edit → Model Data → Members → Connect Lines / Members or use the corresponding toolbar button (see Figure 1).

After activating the command, a new window is opened via the connection point. A node is created between the intersecting members.
