With Konstru you can easily visualize your model by different properties. This makes it easy for you to spot odd ones out or simply check values.
Simply use the View By dropdown on the right hand side in your model view:
There are five predefined settings to automatically colorize your model by selected attributes:
- color by Element Type (helps identify braces modeled as beams, for example)
- color by Material (gives an overview of which materials are used where)
- color by Profile Section
- color by Geometry (can help determine where arcs or splines are used, for example)
- color by Rotation Angle
|By Custom Attribute (Top Offset)
Additionally, Konstru gives you the option to color the elements in the model based on any other attribute present in the model.
In the image at the top, the model is colored based on 'Shear End Forces" coming out of SAP2000.
