Member 3D



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 Member3D is the volumetric geometry resembling for instance soil. It can be defined geometrically by a closed Solid (either Mesh or Brep).
