I'm having problems inserting some intermediary supports for a bar element.
Currently i have a 12 meter bar with the endpoints defined as supports.
But i need a support every 3 meter. To do this i tried two methods:
1) i selected one end node and copied at 3m and then at 6m and so on.
2) i selected the bar, and used "Edit -> Divide" command. I thicked the option "Generate nodes without bar/edge division"
In both cases the problem is that when verifing the model i get "isolated nodes" warning and after the calculation, results show a connection only at the end points for the bar.
This can be also seen if i look at the nodes properties, the "Adjoining elements" filed is empty.
I want to pin the bar onto the supports at 3m not only at its endpoints. How can i do that?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Nvm, i found out what i was missing.
I should regenerate a computational model: Analysis->Generation of a computational model
Sorry, for posting too early
The general remark addressed to all users of Robot:
Please run model generation before running model verification. This will solve a lot questions that otherwise would need to be taken care of such as e.g. no material assigned to a panel Thank you.
