plate/shell member's shape configuration

Hello,

 

Is there any command in robot that will change the shape of a wall by means of stretching it( imagine a rectangular wall and you try to move the upper portion only but the lower portion is fixed), the normal way of doing this, is moving/traslating the "nodes" on top and start modelling the walls and you have a slanted wall, but how about if you have rectangular wall and you want to deformed it, moving nodes is not an option(since only nodes will move leaving behind the wall).

 

Pls. see attched.

 

Regards,

Try with graphical edit.

Select the wall and then locate the corner you want to move. Use zoom and pan for precise selection. Then click with left mouse button on the corner you want to move and drag to a new location.

Thanks everybody! But how about if I need a precise location/dimension,ie, 36 mm etc. My twenty story project needs the core walls" tilt" about 52 mm from the top of the 18 th floor(just to give allowance to the effect of posttensioned floors), I am also wondering, if there's a sweeping command that I can used to tilt all the walls that form the core wall in one instant(even the openings will follow as well).

Hello Arthur,
