In Leap Bridge Steel, I have a curved bridge, so the girder lengths are not integer values. Under the Member Definition tab I'm unable to manually input flange plate lengths to a sufficient decimal in order to be able to run analysis (see below for the message I get that says the model is incomplete). First of all, the warning I get is that the plates are either intersecting or no elements are defined for lengths, for example, from 100.0005 to 100.000503 (for the actual message see snippet below). Second of all, when I try to enter plate lengths to these decimals it doesn't even save it. This is very inconvenient, is there a way to adjust decimal tolerance? I do not want to automatically generate plates.
Currently i do not have a direct solution for this issue other than inputting the correct dimensions in the program.
Sometimes it can be tedious to input so many decimal places, i shall forward your concern to the product manager and will discuss with them.
to see how we can find a solution to this problem.
Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention.
I see, thanks. If only it saved the decimal places at all. I tried to enter as many decimals as the error message showed, but when I close the Member Definition tab and reopen it removes these extra decimals and the error message shows up again.
Has a solution been found for this problem? We're having the same issue.
