The Renumber tool allows you to renumber nodes, members or plates at any stage of the program operation. Items that reference nodes, members or plates such as restraints, constraints, loads and steel design data are automatically adjusted for the new numbering sequence.


After selecting the nodes, members or plates to be renumbered, right-click and select "Renumber" from the menu that appears. In the form shown below, the "Increment by" option allows you to create a gap in a sequence of nodes, members or plates without having to redefine the entire numbering sequence. You can also renumber in one, two or three directions simultaneously if required.



Note that if a node, member or plate is to be renumbered to a node, member or plate that already exists, SPACE GASS displays an error message and forces you to change the renumbering data before renumbering can proceed.
