Copy Elements from Floor to Floor


RISAFloor v13.0 now includes the added ability to graphically copy elements from one floor to another floor. This feature will expedite the modeling process by giving designers more control over which beams, columns, walls and joints are carried over to another floor. To access the tool, click on the Copy Selected Items button to open the dialog box.
