is there a specific way you should model members ie
column - bottom to top
beams - left to right
as point 1 and point 2 ends will be determined or don't bother.
personally I wasn't going to worry which end is which...any thoughts though, cheers steve
Never been an issue Steve, it's not a fussy as some packages.
The direction can be relevant when reporting on properties. Using the Reports toolset in CONNECT Edition the x,y,z coordinates of an element can be reported, the coordinates of column bases or pile caps for instance. In that scenario placement by End1 or End2 becomes relevant.
I'll post some examples later.
