Select the two crossing or nearly crossing members. Then use Process - Segment selection to introduce a node at the intersection point. Be sure to check the box that indicates, "Add intermediate nodes at memebr intersections"
There is a tolerance for this that you can control.
There is a similar option in the automatic meshing under Process - Analysis - Finite Element Model tab.
In cases where you have crossing members that should slip past each other, this option should be turned off.
In Ram Elements the position of all members and shells are derived from the node coordinates. To move a structure, you simply need to move the nodes. Tools are provided to make it easy to add, subtract or even multiply the nodal coordinates by a constant as shown in the video below:
