Hi All,

I used one of the steel connections from the A.S. library, and added the connection loads (M, P & V) manually.

Could you please update me on what an entered positive value relects for each force type. As an example, if I entered P as positive value, does that mean it is considered as a tension force, has the same direction as the global axes of the assembly or the local axes. and where I could find more details on that?

Thank you,
