The Axis node (the Axis sheet in the StructFrameConnections.xls workbook) defines the axis frame connections that are available. An axis frame connection aligns the cardinal points of the supporting and the supported member systems.

Name

Defines the name of the frame connection. This is the name that appears in the software when placing a member system in the model.

Definition

Specifies the axis frame connection definition macro to use.

X Offset

Specifies an offset to apply in the x-direction after the two cardinal points are aligned.

Y Offset

Specifies an offset to apply in the y-direction after the two cardinal points are aligned.

Z Offset

Specifies an offset to apply in the z-direction after the two cardinal points are aligned.

Coordinate System

Specifies the coordinate system to use for the offset values. Local is the local coordinate system of the supporting member.

Supporting CP

Specifies to which cardinal point on the supporting member system to align the supported member system's cardinal point. You can specify any cardinal point number, or select 0 to use the cardinal point with which the supporting member was placed.
