3D Rendered View


Hi Everyone,

Can someone tell me if it is possible to change color of entities in the 3D rendered view of STAAD as - different colors for different sizes of I-beam, for example. I could find only one color for one type of beam (like an I section).

Also, is there any way I can add entities color legend in the rendered view window rather than in the full sections' window.

Thanks in advance.

RE: 3D Rendered View

Not the general 3D view, but there are ways to get 3D version of your model into CAD programs that you can customize (i.e. using ISM, and AECOsim Building Designer, ProStuctures and MicroStation)
