4.16. Settings - Beam Sections

This window lets you control the plotting of beams.

Circular Beam Plot Settings

The number of facets to be plotted for each circular cross-section beam.

Spring Plot Settings
  • Select the Plot Springs toggle to enable the spring plot.

    Scale

    Normalizes each plotted damper with the length of the damper element.

    Fixed Length

    Displays each plotted damper as a fixed size.

    Length Scale Factor

    The Length Scale Factor is only used together with the scale option. If a length scale factor of one is chosen, each damper will be displayed as half the length as the element.

    Fixed Length

    If the fixed length option has been selected, specify the length of each plotted damper in this field.

    Radius to Length Ratio

    Sets the radius to length ratio of each plotted spring.

    Number of revolutions

    Sets the number of revolutions for each plotted spring.

    Resolution

    Sets the number of lines used to represent each plotted spring.

  • Damper Plot Settings

    Select the Plot Damper toggle to enable the damper plot.

    Scale

    Normalizes each plotted damper with the length of the damper element.

    Fixed Length

    Displays each plotted damper as a fixed size.

    Length Scale Factor

    The Length Scale Factor is only used together with the scale option. If a length scale factor of one is chosen, each damper will be displayed as half the length as the element.

    Fixed Length

    If the fixed length option has been selected, specify the length of each plotted damper in this field.

    Radius to Length Ratio

    Sets the radius to length ratio of each plotted damper.

    Resolution

    Sets the number of lines used to represent each plotted damper.
