M. To generate copies of geometry along a line

To generate copies of selected geometry along a path parallel to a global axis, use the following procedure.

  1. Select the structure geometry (beams, plates, solids, etc.) that you want to copy.
    ヒント: You do not need to select the nodes, as they will be copied along with the other model entities.
  2. On the Geometry ribbon tab, select the Translational Repeat tool in the Structure group.

    The Translational Repeat dialog opens.
  3. Select the Global Direction along which the copies will be generated.
  4. Specify the No. of Steps to generate.
    ヒント: By setting the Default Spacing value first, the entries will update with the new value for each step.
  5. (オプション) Edit the Spacing values for each step (copy) if the steps are irregular or if the desired Default Spacing was not first specified.
  6. (オプション) Set the option to Renumber Bay and specify a Number from value (start number of that copy) if needed.
  7. (オプション) Set the Link Steps option to generate additional members between copies, parallel to the Global Direction. You may also set the Open Base option, which will prevent links from being generated between nodes with the lowest Y coordinates (when Y is vertical/up).
  8. (オプション) Set the Generation Flags to the level of geometry, properties, or specifications to be copied to the new, generated members.
  9. Click OK.

    The new members are generated using the specified parameters.
