Placing Node Between Two Points

Tips & Tricks

Up until now, if you wanted to determine the centroid of a surface, it was necessary to define a line from one corner point to the diagonally opposite one. By dividing this line, you obtain the centroid. In RFEM 5 and RSTAB 8, you now have the possibility to create a node between two points. Thus, it is sufficient to select the corner points, and then you can determine the distance in absolute or relative values.
