View and modify model properties in the Project Workspace

The Structure tree organizes the model geometry in a hierarchical way. It also allows you to view and modify model properties.

When you open a new model, the Structure tree contains two sub-branches: Levels and Sub Models. As the model geometry develops new branches are added, as shown above.

When a branch or sub-branch is selected, the common properties of the selected branch are viewed in the Properties window. You can then modify the common properties in the Properties window.

View and modify structure properties

Structure properties, or building parameters, control the principal direction and default meshing properties of the building.

  1. In the Structure tree, click Structure.

    The structure properties are viewed in the Properties window.

  2. Modify the structure properties according to your needs.

View and modify construction level properties

In the Structure tree, do one of the following:
To Do this
View and modify the properties common to all construction levels
  1. Click Levels.

  1. Click the + sign next to Levels.

    All construction levels in the model are viewed.

  2. Click the desired construction level.

    The level properties are viewed in the Properties window.

  3. Modify the level parameters according to your needs.

View and modify frame properties

The Frames branch is added in the Structure tree when you create the first frame in the model.

  1. In the Structure tree, click the + sign next to Frames.

    All frames in your model are viewed.

  2. Click the desired frame.

    The frame properties are viewed in the Properties window.

  3. Modify the frame properties according to your needs.
