The following advanced plate system macros create side plates, which reinforce one or more members sharing a nodal connection. A nodal connection is typically a construction assembly between built-up members and consists of side plates or ring plates, transition plates, and continuity plates.

Side Plate - Creates a side plate by connecting all flanges on a set of incoming members that share a nodal connection. The corners of the side plate are square. For more information, see Side Plate.

Side Plate 2 - Creates a side plate by connecting all flanges on a set of incoming members that share a nodal connection. The corners of the side plate are sniped. For more information, see Side Plate 2.

Side Plate Axial - Creates a side plate axially on a supported member at its nodal connection with a supporting member. For more information, see Side Plate Axial.
