Show element names

If checked, the names of the elements corresponding to the elements folder in the structure tree are shown above each element.

Show local axis

If checked, show local axis of the elements are shown on the elements.

Show values

If checked, the values ​​of the diagrams will be shown on the structure.

Show units

If show values ​​is checked, it will be active. If marked, the units belonging to internal forces will be shown on the structure.

Manual scale factor

If the option is not selected, the scale factor deemed appropriate by the program is applied for internal force diagrams. If checked, the desired scale factor value can be entered manually in the box to the right.


Normal force, shear force and moment values ​​occurring in purlins are displayed for any selected combination in the element local axes.
