Creates a finite element model from given entities (points, beams, supports, loads, cross sections, materials,... ).

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
PointPtInput nodes of the model that may be connected by elements. May contain duplicate points. The elimination of duplicate nodes closer than 'LDist' does not apply to them. In case of duplicate points, elements are attached to them alternating: first element to first duplicate point, second element to second duplicate point, third element to first duplicate point in case there are only two points in one position. The same mechanism applies to point-loads and supports.Point
