How to renumber Beams in STAAD.Pro?

When we model the structure, the nodes, and elements gets a numerical identity. If these numbers are in sequence, it can be lot easier to find the members faster result interpretation can be done. Speed of work can be increased if we know that the elements are numbered in sequential order. Here is a way to do so:
For numbering Beams as shown below.
For beams in X direction :Select all beams of one floor level of structure. Take it to new view by right click and selecting new view. Select beams parallel to X. Go to geometry → renumber → members. Press yes to the window that asks for confirmation. Give first number from where you want to start your numbering of beams. Select available sort criteria in following sequence  Z co-ordinate X co-ordinate Click Accept.You have done it for beams in x direction.  For beams in Z direction :Select beams parallel to Z. Follow steps from 4 to 6. Select available sort criteria in following sequence X co-ordinate Z co-ordinate (descending) (it can be do…

How to renumber Columns in STAAD.Pro?

When we model the structure, the nodes, and elements gets a numerical identity. If these numbers are in sequence, it can be lot more easier to find the members faster result interpretation can be done. Speed of work can be increased if we know that the elements are numbered in sequential order. Here is a way to do so : For numbering columns as shown below.
Select all columns of structure.Go to geometry → renumber → members.Press yes to the window that asks for confirmation.Give first number from where you want to start your numbering of Columns.Select available sort criteria in following sequence z coordinatex coordinatey coordinateClick Accept. You have done it. If you want numbers in vertical sequence interchange x and z coordinate.

How to renumber Nodes in STAAD.Pro?

When we model the structure, the nodes, and elements gets a numerical identity. If these numbers are in sequence, it can be lot easier to find the members faster result interpretation can be done. Speed of work can be increased if we know that the elements are numbered in sequential order.
Here is a way to do so :
For numbering nodes floor wise as shown below.
Select all nodes of structure.Go to geometry → renumber → node.Press yes to the window that asks for confirmation.Give first number from where you want to start your numbering of nodes.Select available sort criteria in following sequence.
