    ElementRotation1D is used to rotate the beam profile around the axis of beam elements.


    1. There are several ways to invoke the command:
      • Press the FEM ElementRotation1D.svg FEM ElementRotation1D button.
      • Select the Model → Element Geometry → FEM ElementRotation1D.svg Beam rotation option from the menu.
    2. Specify the angle by which the beam profile is to be rotated.




    • Currently multiple rotations are not supported (a single rotation is applied to all beams in the model).


    • To visualize the rotated cross-section it is necessary to set Beam Shell Result Output 3D in the FEM SolverCalculixCxxtools to True and run the analysis.
