Timber Linear Elements Properties - NTC

 

In Advance Design, the calculation of timber linear elements typically follows global timber design assumptions based on the current standards. For more precise control and customization, you have the option to define local timber assumptions for each individual element.

 

 

Accessing the Timber Design Properties of the selected element

This customization is accessible through the properties window, where you can select Timber Properties from the Properties filter dropdown to focus exclusively on the timber design properties of your selected element(s).
