Right-click mouse button design proposal

This article is also available in:
This feature in patch 21.1.2 is another step of the Connection Browser integration into IDEA StatiCa Connection and replaces the similar old-style feature. Shortcut for those of you who like to be super fast - the right-click on a member in the 3D scene automatically proposes designs that fit.

The UI of the right mouse button features Connect to, Anchor, and Modify remains the same. Instead of a solid set of general templates, the Connection Browser proposes designs that fit the number of selected members, their geometry, and cross-sections.

When Connect to function is chosen, multiple members can be now selected.

Current right-click selection workflow:

  • Click the right mouse button at a member
  • Click on Connect to (or Anchor or Modify)
  • With left mouse button select just one additional member to which you want to connect
  • Choose one of the provided templates

New right-click selection workflow with integrated Connection Browser:

  • Click the right mouse button at a member
  • Click on Connect to (or Anchor or Modify)
  • For patch 21.1.2 with the left mouse button select just one additional member to which you want to connect
  • For patch 21.1.3 hold the Ctrl/Shift key and with the left mouse button select multiple additional members which you want to connect
  • Press Spacebar to confirm the selection
  • Choose one of the proposed designs
