I am doing the tutorials. tutorial 1.
Displaying the moments diagrams I get the local diagram for each element. See the picture attached.
I understand it must be a setting I don´t find. The configuration is set to global coordinate system.
How can I get a normal diagram as in the toturial.
Thank you in advance!

You forgot to attach the picture. You can post the link of the tutorial and mention also the time where you have seen the diagram.

Anyway, the results can be displayed in global axes (it appliesmostly for supports results), or in local axes. This can be done from the Resultssettings window (see the attached picture).

Victor, attached is again the screenshot. As you see I have global axis defined but still the diagrams looks like in local coordinates.

It looks like you have deactivated the “Bending rigidstructure” option. Unchecking this option is recommended in the analysis of 2Dtruss models or models with elements without bending stiffness (like bars andmembranes). More information about this can be found in the following FAQ:

Howis the bending rigid structure option used?

In order to obtain the correct result you’ll have to check the“Bending rigid structure” option. This can be done in the descriptive modelfrom Menu bar > Assumptions > Structure (see the attached image).
