M. To automatically form physical members

To have the program automatically detect and form physical members within a selected set of members, use the following procedure.

  1. Select a set of beams that you want formed into physical members.
  2. Either:

    on the Geometry ribbon tab, select the AutoForm Member tool in the Physical Members group (Analytical Modeling workflow)

    または

    on the Member Design ribbon tab, select the AutoForm Member tool in the Physical Members group (Steel Design workflow)

The program applies the rules of forming physical members to detect which members should be grouped to a single physical member.
