Editing deflection groups in beam frames

In version 2023.b, three options have been added for editing the deflection groups of beam frames. Up to this version, deflection groups were generated automatically and no changes could be made. These options are as follows:

  • Automatic
    Allows users to automatically generate the deflection groups.

  • Edit
    Allows users to modify the “Support conditions” and deflection type for each deflection group.

  • Join / Divide
    Allows users to join and divide deflection groups. When selecting a node between two deflection groups, those groups will be joined together. Selecting a node inside a deflection group will split that group.
