StructuralSurfaceAction

Surface load

Defines actions on surfaces – plates, walls. The surface load is defined on the whole slab automatically. If only a part of the main slab is supposed to be subject to this load, a subregion (StructuralSurfaceMemberRegion) must be defined inside the main slab.

Parent ID

String

no

Is filled for objects created be dividing curved geometry to series of straight line objects. Parent ID will ensure that curved edge is imported as straight parts to nonsupporting application, and back to original supporting application as curved geometry.

To ensure successful round trip of segmented objects and their related objects, Parent ID needs to be present in both directions.
