Why are the wind and snow load generators disabled (greyed out) in my model?


The prerequisite for using both generators for wind and snow load are that you are working with the 3D model type. For a 2D model type, the program does not have the corresponding geometrical parameters.

The model type is set in the general data of the model. The corresponding dialog box can be opened by right-clicking 'Model Data' and selecting the 'General Data' shortcut menu option in Project Navigator - Data (see Figure).

If changing the model type, it may be necessary to adjust the modelling (supports, joints).
