Copying Supports and FE Mesh Refinements
Tips & Tricks
You can copy and move supports by using the drag-and-drop function, even if the “Move / Copy” function is not available in the shortcut menu. This is true for all kinds of supports: nodal supports, line supports, and surface supports. In this easy way, you can easily assign these supports to further nodes, lines, or surfaces, respectively.
If you need to copy nodes, lines, or surfaces together with the supports, pay attention to select the objects as well as the supports (see Figure). By right‑clicking the object (not the support), you can also use the “Move / Copy” function.
In the same way, in RFEM you can quickly assign FE mesh refinements to objects as well as move or copy them.
