Importing Member Rotation in Nodal Supports
Tips & Tricks
If you want to orient a nodal support to the member axes of the connecting member, the easiest way to do this is to use the function ‘Pick Member and Import its Rotation’. This function can be found in the ‘Edit Nodal Support’ dialog box and must be specified for each axis individually.
