I can’t get my steel section property in gsageometrygym to appear in GSA.
I have tried many methods and failed everytime. I wish to get my section property assignment for each of my element pre-defined in grasshopper. So, I do not have to manually insert it in GSA everytime I make changes in my model.
We have worked continuously on improvements to the components over the past 12 years.
So some of the older examples use “superseded” versions of the components, we haven’t necessarily tried to go back and revise them but as you observe, they will be flagged with the “OLD” icon.
Normally all you will find is that the newer component has the same name but perhaps an extra input or two (or sometime a component will be broken down into two or more components with fewer arguments).
I tried your script and didn’t notice it causing any problems in the SAP generation. Can you confirm you have rhino model open with units of metres? Our plugin will scale, so if you’re working in cm or mm, you’ll get a sap 2000 file of a different scale.
What does the rhino command prompt note when you bake to SAP2000? If you can share your sap file (might have to email or zip for forum), I can take a look for other reasons for problems.
