Can I align a nodal support in RSTAB 8 to a rotated member without having to measure the angle and enter it?


Yes, this is possible.

On the one hand, you can define the rotation about the Z-, Y-, or X-axis by selecting 2 or 3 nodes. Find the corresponding command in the button to the right of the text box for the angle of rotation. See picture 01.

If you have entered a member that has been rotated about its own axis (for example, a purlin on an inclined roof), you can use the "member rotation ß" to rotate the nodal support. See Figure 02.
