Expanded Load Categories in RISA-3D and RISAFoundation


New to RISA-3D v19 and RISAFoundation v13 is the ability to apply up to 100 "Other Load" Categories. Previously users only had the ability to add up to 10 "Other Load" Categories. The expansion of "Other Load" Categories gives the user more flexibility to be able to apply and organize the loading in the model to fit their needs.

To apply "Other Load" Categories in RISA-3D, simply select the "Other Load" Category from the drop down menu when drawing loads.
