# Geometry creation

The three most common methods of inputting data into GSA are manually, sculpting and copying.

# Manually

Insert data manually in a tabulated format.

Go to Explorer pane > Data > Nodes to bring up its corresponding input table.


# Sculpting

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


# Copying

Use the Copy icon: 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
