Member 2D



Members in GSA are geometrical objects used in the Design Layer. Members can automatically intersect 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 Member2D is the planar/area geometry resembling for instance a slab or a wall. It can be defined geometrically from a planar Brep.
