Member 1D



Members in GSA are geometrical objects used in the Design Layer. Members can automatically intersection with other members. Members are as such more closely related to building objects, like a beam, column, slab or wall. Elements can automatically be created from Members used for analysis.

A Member1D is the linear geometry resembling for instance a column or a beam. They can be defined geometrically by a PolyCurve consisting of either multiple line segments or a single arc.
