Displaying the result values is too inaccurate. Where can I set the number of result values for the member internal forces?


In the "Global Calculation Parameters", there is the setting "Number of divisions of members for result diagrams."

By default, this value is preset to "10".

If members with greatly differing lengths are used in a model, it may happen that the preset value of "10" is too small. This is then, for example, the case that the parabolic moment diagram is not displayed correctly for the shorter members.

To avoid the problem, enter a higher value, for example: Enter "50", for example.

Thus, a parabolic moment diagram is also displayed on the shorter members.

The length of the sections is obtained from the length of the longest member in the structure divided by the set number of member divisions. The finer division of members applies to all members of the model.
