Bracing Connections

Bracing tools support you when bracings have to be created. You can add bracing rods, drill and design the appertaining gusset plates, or have them designed automatically.

In contrast to the dynamic bracing, this bracing here doesn’t react to modifications. However, it can be created individually piece-by-piece.

The program always enters bracings in the active UCS plane, i.e. you should place the UCS with its origin into the desired bracing plane and align it parallel.

Since the rods are aligned in accordance with the system lines, they should have been created previously. In case of a cross-stay with uniformly staggered rods, the middle of the system will be sufficient. The rods can be arranged alternatively.
