Model branching in Robot

Status: New Idea

Problem: In some cases it is desirable with different parameters for different analysis types in a structure. Examples could be:

  • A structure where you want different releases in the static model than in the earthquake model
  • A structure where you want different load to mass conversions for different cases

Currently, I often find myself saving different instances of a model. This means that changing geometry becomes time-consuming as each instance must be updated.

 

Solution: Allowing the model to branch, so that eg. one geometric model can be the parent of models with different material properties/loads/masses/analysis types.

The similar effect can be obtained using phase structures - see this link: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Robot-Structural-Analysis/Collecting-phases/m-p/3506096#M5598
