Adjusting Direction of Finite Element Axis from Surfaces to Lines

Tips & Tricks

It is often necessary to adjust the FE mesh of surface elements to the geometric structure. RFEM provides various options for this. For example, the FE axis can be rotated about a point, aligned in the direction of a point, or orientated to a user-defined coordinate system. Another option is the direction parallel to a line, and particularly in this case, it is possible to enter or select several lines.
