M. To detect and remove zero length members
- On the Utilities ribbon tab, select the tool in the Geometry Tools group. The Zero length beams dialog opens.
Type a different tolerance in the
Enter Tolerance field.
Since duplicate nodes can be two or more nodes separated by any user-defined distance, zero length members too can be defined as members of any user defined length. This distance is the tolerance used in the process of detection.
If no members of zero length are detected a message is displayed.
If one or more zero length members are detected, the Detect Zero Length Member dialog opens.
- Select a zero length member in the list and then click Delete to remove the beam.
- Repeat Step four as necessary until all zero length members are removed.
- Click Close.
