The following advanced plate system macros create ring plates, which reinforce one or more members sharing a nodal connection and penetrated by a perpendicular cylindrical member. 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.

Ring Plate 1 - Creates a ring plate by connecting all flanges on a set of incoming members that share a nodal connection and a penetrating perpendicular cylindrical member. The corners of the ring plate are square. For more information, see Ring Plate 1.

Ring Plate 2 - Creates a ring plate by connecting all flanges on a set of incoming members that share a nodal connection and a penetrating perpendicular cylindrical member. The corners of the ring plate are sniped. For more information, see Ring Plate 2.

Ring Plate 3- Creates a ring plate by connecting all flanges on a set of incoming members that share a nodal connection and a penetrating perpendicular cylindrical member. The ring plate has a continuous radial edge between members. For more information, see Ring Plate 3 .
