Could someone pelase assist me with following case:
I have a roof truss structure, which I tred to model as centerline sketch skeleton and weldemt profiles sweeped along sketch lines.
In order to ensure flawless joint connections I tried to be smart and splitten my top an bottom main profile skeches, so that every diagonal member sharesa common & one end point with main profile(s). The outcome was somewhat opposite,
- Joint points are drifting along screen, as seen in enclosed screen capture
- there are more visible joint points than I expected, but mybe this is because of merged points shown as one and orphans with different colour.
- one piece if I beam profile appears & meshes as solid part, but I'm pretty sure that such an extrusion does not exist in history tree. Normally I could RMB on feature tree and select "treat as beam" but in this case there does not exist such an option
- some diagonal (secondary) members have a blue "i", maybe this is because of orphan Joint points?
In general alternative way would be use a shell model, but it is somewhat complex thing to do it, trim, split, define thickensses.. so I'd preferably stay with Weldment & Beam 1D, if possible.
Any hints what to do? Please find following screen captures:
