Bars to links (API)

Hi everyone.

I would like to know if anyone can tell me if it is possible to automatically transform a series of bars into links.
Thanks

Alex

Example macro attached.

Selected bars in Robot will be converted onto full rigid links

Thank you very much!

Now I am still a new user of robots, but I would like to know if I can create by myself an application

like the one you sent me.

 

Is there a manual to learn?

Hi Rafal,

Could you confirm that now it is impossible to create trough API multiple rigid links with the common master node?

Of course it is not possible because it is not possible to create such RL in Robot itself.

Really?

I'm trying to do the same by API

        Dim RLS As RobotNodeRigidLinkServer
        Set RLS = RobApp.Project.Structure.Nodes.RigidLinks
        
        RLS.Set 7, "3to6", "rl_fixed"

Hi Rafal,

            Can you update the API macro to create Compatible nodes between bars end nodes instead of Rigid links?

I have about 1000 nodes that need to be linked in a nonlinear behavior and I could not find away other than copying the nodes with the Drag option so as to create bars, and then use the API to create a compatible link between the end points of each bar.

Just for your info, I am using it with Solid/volumetric structure design module.

Thanks

Hi @mgaafar

I am afraid it can not be done by API.

Using API , the compatible nodes can be generated only in bars common node  + specifying bars which should belong to new node created.

@Rafal.Gawedacould you please explain how this sheet works?

I have selected a closed boundary of bars in RSAP and run your macro but I always get the message: "Decide - RL will not be created".

 

Could you explain or create a video please? Thanks!

Hi @cool.stuff 

 

This macro works for only ONE selected bar.
