For some Sikla cross-sections in Sikla connections, the RF‑JOINTS add-on module gives the error "Only Sikla cross-sections allowed" and it is not possible to perform the calculation. What is wrong?


This message means that a particular cross-section cannot be used for any types of the Sikla connections. Some cross-sections can be used as a supporting element in a particular connection, but not as an attached beam.
