Modeling | Structure RFEM RSTAB

I have several crossing members modelled in my structural system, but they are still not connected with each other. How can I easily create a node at the connection point?

Answer

The command that you need is "Connect Members".

You can access it by clicking the menu


Edit > Model Data > Members > Connect Lines/Members

or by using the corresponding toolbar button.


Then, you can draw a window across the location of the connection to create a node between the intersecting members.
