Can I also use the load generator for members lying not in one plane?


For irregular member structures, the load generators 'From Area Load on Members via Plane' or with 'Cells' can be helpful. However, both functions assume that the nodes of the members are situated in one plane. In the settings of the load generators, it is possible to increase tolerances for the nodes to also detect nodes that lie outside the plane (see Figure 01). In interaction with the 'virtual lines', it is possible to load even more complex structures.
