Copy Seed Model - PDS - Training

FrameWorks Plus Tutorial


All the time and effort that you have put into the seed model is about to pay off. In this activity we are going to create two new models using your seed model. One model, called linear, contains the beams, columns, and braces in your model. The other model, called solids, contains the concrete or solid members of your model.

While you can model linear and solid members in the same model, using a separate model for solid members is the recommended method.

  1. Click the MicroStation File > Close command.

    The graphics environment closes and the FrameWorks Manager dialog box appears.

  2. Click Utilities > Copy > Model.

  3. Click Browse for the From field.

  4. Select seedmodel.mod from the list, and then click OK.

  5. Click Browse for the To field.

  6. Type linear in the Files box, and then click OK.

  7. Click OK on the Copy FrameWorks Model dialog box.

  8. Click OK to confirm that you want to copy the model.

    FrameWorks Plus creates a new model called Linear.mod.
