AutoCAD Robot for Tower Analysis

AutoCAD Robot for Tower Analysis

Can AutoCAD Robot be used to analyze a steel lattice tower?

RE: AutoCAD Robot for Tower Analysis

I've never heard of it and have never used it, but I glanced at the web page. I doubt it will handle T-Line towers or MW towers with angles for legs and lacing members. If you ask the ACAD salesman, they will probably say it will, but ask if it will code check according to ASCE 10.

You can probably force feed a lattice tower into almost any structural software and they may be able to handle it and output forces in the members but they may not have the code checking ability of the popular software made for T-Line towers.

I have been called "A storehouse of worthless information" many times.
