Connection design proposal (BETA)

This article is also available in:

BETA version of the new Connection design proposal helps you find a suitable design solution from a library of predefined designs and directly apply it to your members.

You can open the browser and directly go through available designs for all current members' topology of your connection.

For the nonstandard topologies, try to select only three members at a time. Switch the Topology to Selection and use the pick tool and hold CTRL to select multiple members. Confirm the selection with Enter/spacebar or right mouse button. The browser will filter the topologies based on your selection.

The selected solution is applied to a part of the joint.

To display the full content of the library, switch the Topology to None. You can also filter the designs based on bolts and welds or use the search field on the top.

Prospectively, we will implement also the possibility to save custom designs and share them with others.

Available in Expert and Enhanced edition.
