Geometry is assumed to be given in [m]. Creates beams with default properties from given lines. Lines that meet at a common point are thus connected with each other. Karamba assumes input to be in meters.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
LineLineStraight line which will be connected to others if they meet at common points. Node indexes may change if lines are added.Curve
ColorColorColour of the beam. The component applies the longest list principle with respect to the input lines.Colour
IdentifierIdIdentifier of the beam. Need not be unique in a model. The component applies the longest list principle with respect to the input lines.String
Cross sectionCroSecCross section of the beam. The component applies the longest list principle with respect to the input lines.CrossSection
PointsPtsList of points which will be inserted at the beginning of the node-list at the output-plug. This makes it easy to reference them by index in the model later on. May contain duplicate points. 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.Point
NewNewIf false, a line only results in an element if it connects to points given in the 'Points' input-plug.Boolean
RemoveRemoveRemove duplicate lines - otherwise there could be two elements on the same spot which is normally not preferred.Boolean
Limit distance [m]LDistLimit distance [m] for coincident points.Number
Z-OrientationZ-OriNew orientation of the local Z-axis of beam. If the vector has zero length, the default orientation remains in place.Vector
BendingBendingIf true the beam has bending stiffness. Otherwise it is a truss.Boolean
