The following tasks are used frequently in the Structure task.

Customize Reference Data

Create new member types by editing the AllCodeLists.xls workbook. For more information, see the Structural Reference Data Guide.

Review, add, and edit material information. For more information, see the Structural Reference Data Guide.

Place Members

Place columns in the model. For more information, see Place members using discrete placement.

Place beams in the model. For more information, see Place members using contiguous placement.

Places braces in the model. For more information, see Place vertical cross bracing, Place vertical chevron bracing, and Position framing members at equal spacing.

Split member systems into member part as needed to resolve interferences, place column splices, and other modeling issues. For more information, see Split a member that intersects another member and Split columns at a plane.

Place assembly connections in the model. For more information, see Place an assembly connection.

Place Slabs

Place slabs in the model. The software provides great flexibility in placing slabs. For more information, see:

Place a slab by drawing 2-D boundaries
Place a slab by drawing 3-D boundaries
Place a slab by selecting objects and drawing 2-D boundaries
Place a slab by selecting objects and drawing 3-D boundaries

Place Walls

Place walls in the model. The software provides great flexibility in placing walls. For more information, see:
