General structural analysis tools for rhino
Each structural plug-in is basically at its core a rhino plug-in which allows import, export and manipulation from within Rhino.
Each structural analysis plug-in has a similar approach with some additional tools available for some specific tools available within each.
ggStrand7DeleteModel [object Action = Strip_Data]
This command will strip representative model geometry of structural analysis data. You may want to do this when issuing models for co-ordination or to reduce file size.
ggStrand7DeleteModel [Object Action = Delete]
You can delete all representative model geometry and structural analysis data by using this command.
ggSAPGetStructText [Object Source = CurrentModel/Visible/Selection]
Extract data allows you to generate a structural analysis file of a selection of or all of the elements within the current open Rhino file. The selection can be made from either current model which includes all model elements, a selection of objects or objects visible within the open Rhino view port.
After importing a structural model into Rhino, you can select a number of (portion) of the elements in the Rhino view port and retrieve a summary of those selected elements.
Turn on structural node information within the rhino view port, subsequently you can toggle this on and off.
Turn on structural element information within the rhino view port, subsequently you can toggle this on/off.
