RE: Question on SAP2K

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Ghassem,
There is no easy way to do what your asking such as specifying an offset
perpendicular to the axis of an element.  The only way I can think of doing
what you are suggesting is to create a member whose axis is offset to the
other member's axis, and constrain the adjacent nodes to one another.
However, be careful to make sure your results are correct, and your
constraints are properly identified.
