(API) macro for detecting short calculation elements - Instability type 3


1. Select all model (CTRL+A) and run intersection (Edit > Intersect)

2. Find the shorter bars and determine why their end nodes are in such locations


This is an old thread, but a new question crossed my mind.

 

Rather than using the workaround above, would it be possible to read lengths of calculation elements using API?

Attached example macro.

Set length limit, run macro, nodes selection will be automatically made in Robot.

"macro for detecting short calculation elements" which can be the reasons of "Instability type 3" while running model calculations.
