I can not enter any cables in my model. What can I do?


Presumably, the model type 2D -XY is activated. The type 2D - XY is used e.g. for planar plate structures such as slabs that are stressed perpendicular to the surface plane. However, the member type “Cable” can not be selected for this model type.

If you change the model type, this member type can be selected again.


Cable 2D XY
