What is the difference between Widener , Doubler and Rib?
The Stiffening plate can be, by default, placed generally in the space and related to the joint origin point. Or the user can align the Stiffening plate to another Plate or Member already used in the scene.
When the user uses the position of the Stiffening plate aligned to the Plate or Member, the Type selection is also available. And here, the user can select from 3 options. Widener, Doubler, and Rib. In some situations, it can be difficult to decide immediately which choice will be the best one.
This simple scheme could bring some light into deciding which is the best choice.
