Can be the number of beam elements per line specified?

Dear experts,

Where specify the number of finite beam elements per line in LineToBeam component (or in any other)?

It is a common practice in FEA to increase such number to assess convergence.

In my model, it seems that there is just one beam element per line (using Ctrl-M in GH panel).

Thanks!

Sorry for the late reply. You can split the initial beam into smaller lines and feed them into the LineToBeam component. If you are referring to the results, in the ModelView component, you can set the LineSegment under Render Settings to be lower which will split your beam into smaller segments for the result visualisation.

Hi Matthew, thanks for your kind response.

So Karamba always uses 1 beam per line in FEA, but this number may vary in ModelView results representation. Am I right?

Thanks!
