T.2 Changing the input units of length

For specifying member properties for the structure, it is more convenient to use length units are millimeter instead of meter. This requires changing the current length units of input.

The STAAD input file commands generated are:

  1. On the Geometry ribbon tab, select the Input Units tool in the Structure group.

    The Set Input Units pop-up opens.
  2. Select Metric as the Input Units.
  3. Set the Length Units to Milimeter.

    Leave the Force Units set to KiloNewton.

  4. Click Apply.
