Creating and manipulating geometry

The three most common methods of inputting and manipulating data into GSA are with sculpting tools, manually editing tables and copying.


Use the sculpt toolbar to define geometry in the graphics window.


Manually editing tables

For example, to edit the node positions, go to Explorer pane > Data > Nodes to bring up its corresponding input table.



Select an entity and use the Copy icon: icon or Ctrl+Alt+C to duplicate existing geometry to extend the model.


Additional data inputting

Data can also be inputted:

  • Via a text file (advanced option) - Copy data out in GWA format, edit, and replace
  • Using an API - Using an Application Programme Interface to create and edit GSA files
