Hi all, I am a very new (self-taught) RSA user and have a million questions but will try not to post every single one on here.
I understand the basics of drawing a 3D frame, specifying member sizes, adding basic loads, running calculations. However I have not been able to figure out how to get RSA to optimize beam and column sizes for me once I have ran my calculations. My concern is that when I design a structure in SolidWorks and then re-draw and analyze it in Robot that some of my members may be considerably oversized. Is it possible to get RSA to tell me if these members are oversized and provide a suggestion for a smaller member to replace the members I have used? I am currently operating RSA Pro 2010, a little outdated but it's all we have at this time. Thank you
you can found some videos on youtube about last release of Robot
or you can see this videos (made with older versions of robot)
or you can read this
Consider that design procedure in Robot is almost the same for 2010 version or 2013, differences are for new implemented features or new codes
