Enhanced "Move" Tools in RISAFoundation

RISAFoundation includes the added ability to move selected foundation elements. This includes beams, wall footings, piles, pedestals, slabs, etc. To access the move tools, click on the Modify tab in the toolbar.

There are 3 primary ways to move elements:

1. Move by Global selection is a straight forward option that allows a user to move selected items by entering the exact movement increments in the X and Z directions. In the demonstration below, we entered “5” for the X direction. 


2. Move by Point to Point selection allows a user to graphically move selected items by clicking from one point to another. As demonstrated below, the Move by Point to Point selection is used to move the footings and beams from Grids B and C to Grids C and D.


3. Move by Rotate selection is another self-explanatory option that allows a user to move selected items at a specified angle to the horizontal Z axis with an origin choice of Coordinates, Center of Selection, and Click to Locate. Demonstrated below, we again moved the selection so that the footing would now be rotate 90 degrees. This was achieved by entering an angle of “90” degrees and an origin of Click to Locate.
