Re:STAAD joint/member naming conventions

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You should use de GROUP command. See the STAAD Manual.
I always use it. If you need more help let me know.

Does anyone use a standard naming convention for joint or member
generation? I'm
really tired of seeing member #138 and having to look at a map to see
member #138 is at. I really wish REI would allow us to use characters so
member #138 could become column B5.

I've thought of the YYXXn naming for columns and YYXXZZ for members but
run out
of space when we have more than 10 column lines or floors.  Apparently,
can't use seven digit numbers for joints/members.
