MIDAS GEN: FREE NODES & OVERLAPPING MEMBER CHECK

Question:

Dear All,

Is there a way/tool to check for free nodes & overlapping members in midas gen?.

Most of the time im having problem deleting free nodes after a move or copy an element. 


Answer:

Hello,

Using merge nodes, Merge all the nodes (more than 1) including their attributes (nodal loads and nodal boundary conditions), witch exist in a given range. 

And using Delete function, you can delete the free nodes. Select the all the nodes and check on the [only Free Nodes] option and click the [Apply] button. And then you can delete the all of the free nodes.
Thank you.
