help on modelling lattice frame


Dear Midas support

I modelled a lattice tower frame in AutoCAD and imported it to Midas civil. See attached.

Just wanted some assistance to see if I am going in the right direction. Some of my commands don’t seem to work. Ie seeing the member sections in 3D. When I run the analysis, it shows me errors but cant seem to locate the error file.

Thank you for writing to us!
It seems like the units in drawing file are in mm, but the units while importing in midas Civil are in m. Hence, when the distance is checked between 2 random points at top and bottom, it was noted that the distance was about 64000m!

Kindly change the units in midas Civil to mm before importing the said drawing file. Also, it was noted that many elements were overlapping in this model. Kindly click on Structure> Check/Duplicate Elements once the model is imported to remove the duplicate elements.
