Can I save the load combinations and result combinations and reinsert them in other locations?


Yes, this is possible with a combination scheme. This can be used to create user-defined templates.

The Combination Schema dialog box can be accessed via the "Tools" menu. A scheme defined there can be used as template for your load data. You can create a combination scheme in any model and access it from any model.

In a combination scheme, you specify the load cases, load and result combinations to be created with the relevant key data and the basic settings. In addition to the number of load cases, load combinations and result combinations, you can also define the factors and the type of superposition in a combination scheme.

Then, when creating a new model, you can quickly access these settings so that you only have to enter the contents of the load cases (member loads, etc.). If you have already created several schemes, you can select one of them from the pull-down list.

Click the [New Scheme] button to create another combination scheme. In doing so, you can copy the existing load cases and combinations of the current model.

The button [Create Load Cases, Load Combinations, and Result Combinations Defined in Tables] transfers the current combination scheme to the model.

The combination diagrams can also be exported to Excel and reimported.

The user-defined combination diagrams are stored in the KombinSchema.dat file, which is located in the master data folder "C:\ProgramData\Dlubal\Global\Root File" by default. If you copy this file to another computer, you can also use the combination diagrams there.
