I have the problem that some members in my sets of members are twisted. Why is this and how can I solve it?

Answer

A slight deviation of the node coordinates may result in a distortion of the member orientation.
                                 
You can check this in the future by getting information about the position of the member in space from table column N. There you can see to which global axis the member is parallel or in which plane spanned by the global axes the member lies.
If no entry is available, the member is positioned anywhere in space.
