To add descriptions to members

To add description tags to members, use the following procedure.

Each time this procedure is performed, the number suffix of the description is incremented.

For example, if you select all of the beams framing the first floor of a structure and apply the beam description, they will be labeled BEAM1. Repeating the procedure again will label the second selection of beams as BEAM2.

  1. Select members with the same description (i.e., beam, column, or brace).
  2. Select the Description tool in the Assign properties group on the Member ribbon tab.

  3. From the drop-down list, select the appropriate description tag for the selected members.
    • Beam Description
    • Column Description
    • Brace Description
    The description is applied to the selected members with a numeric suffix incremented from any previous descriptions.
You can edit member descriptions by selecting the Members tool in the Members on the Spreadsheet ribbon tab.
