M. To assign specifications to physical members
To assign member end or axial specifications to physical members, use the following procedure.
Note: For a physical member whose physical member specification is already assigned, the individual analytical members in that Physical member will adopt the same member specification that of the physical member. However, in case, where the analytical member specification is assigned to any member in that physical member, then this analytical member specification will supersede physical member specification.
- Select the Specifications page in the Analytical Modeling page control bar. The Specifications - Whole Structure dialog opens.
Geometry ribbon tab, select the
Toggle Physical Member Mode tool in the
Physical Members group.
The tool is highlighted to indicate the mode is active.
- Click Beam in the Specifications - Whole Structure dialog. The Member Specification dialog opens.
- Select the specification type you want to assign:
- Add Release or Offset attributes as you would for analytical members.
- Click Add.
