Copy by parameters, copy by rotation, mirror copy, copy by one node


This tutorial illustrates options of the Fragmentation command for the comprehensive detailed visual examination and possible modification of design model as well as for the evaluation of analysis results


In the 2014 version we developed new ribbon interface styles: "Ribbon RC", "Ribbon Steel", "Ribbon plus". It simplifies the handling process with design scheme and provides a simpler and more intuitive scheme positioning in the workspace.

After creating a model, it is recommended to check the type of elements.


LIRA-SAPR software imports construction axes, walls, slabs, columns, and beams from DXF text files. To import these objects to the application, they should be represented by a specific object and belong to a layer with a predefined name.

Restraints Assignment

The construction being designed should be fixed in the space, so the user should select the nodes to be fixed and the directions they should be fixed.


To run any command on objects included in the design scheme (deletion, stiffness assignment, application of loads, etc.), first of all you must point to the corresponding objects by selecting them from the general scheme. To delete the object, it is necessary to indicate it (further, the operation of selecting model objects will be...


This video demonstrates the procedure for coordinating the local axes of plate elements. This procedure allows to obtain forces and stresses oriented with respect to the coordinated local axes as a result of the analysis.
