Hi

I have a series of similar 'frames' in my piping system and since I am performing a dynamic seismic analysis, it is important to include them in my model to obtain more accurate system responses.
I have modeled the frame using the structure modeler of CII and have imported it into my piping model in one of the locations. I just don't know how to copy and 'renumber' the same frame for the rest of the spots.
this does not seem to be possible in the piping model I guess. any tips are highly appreciated.

thanks in advance.

The piping input module will not duplicate (copy/renumber) structural members.

Your best option is to use a "text editor" and copy the structural elements in the STR file, updating the node numbers as appropriate.
