T.3 Changing the input units of length

To specify element properties for the structure, it is more convenient to use length units of centimeter 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 Centimeter. Leave the Force units as KiloNewton.
  4. Click Apply.
