How to display a displacement magnitude on plot output?
Bentley apologizes for the inconvenience, however at this time AutoPIPE V8i 09.06.00.15 and lower cannot perform this functionality.
Only option available for displacement indication on screen is by selecting Tools> Settings> deflected plot preference, and enable "Show XYZ direction lines on plot".
From the online help:
Enabling this option shall display the XYZ direction elements on the deflection and mode shape plots at every point in the model.
1. This option is available for all output options, i.e. Screen, Printer, Plotter, etc.
2. No legend is printed on screen as is shown with Results> Stresses.
