Display Settings RFEM

I have a model with surfaces and members. If I display the deformations in the graphic, the members remain in their initial position.

The members are connected with the surfaces and the table also shows the member deformations. What is the reason for this behavior?

Answer

To avoid an overly convoluted display, the member deformations are shown as lines by default.

In the "Display" navigator, you can adjust the display so that the member deformations are also shown as rendered cross-sections.

Furthermore, you can hide the undeformed model in the "Display" navigator to view only the deformations.
