    Default Equivalent of ETABS "end offsets" in Robot

    ETABS has a feature called "end offsets" which can be used to model the finite cross sectional dimensions of structural members at beam column junctions. That is even though the analytical model might show a span of say "x" between supports, the clear span would be "x-a". With deep supporting members, say a structural wall in the same plane as a supported beam, the effect of this reduction in span between the analytical and physical model could be quite significant. I was wondering whether Robot had a similar feature?

    From Geometry->Additional attributes->Offsets you can achieve what you are looking for. This function is identical with the one of ETABS.

    Default Re: Equivalent of ETABS "end offsets" in Robot

    ETABS has 2 features, "frame end length offsets" and "frame joint offsets". What you are describing seems to be more related to the latter, where a frame member joins eccentrically into another. I stand to be corrected though
