Markus Baumgärtel Modeling | Structure RFEM RSTAB

In my model with many bent bars, the coordinate systems of the bars are not aligned evenly, what can I do to improve this?

Answer

For structures with many arcs, the coordinate systems of the members are not the same (see Figure 1 -> right model), then you can perform the rod rotation or line rotation very easily with an auxiliary node.
