Warning and Errors in Etabs


If you created a model in Etabs using AutoCAD, this will probably create some problems which will lead to delay in running the model. This is because the start and end points of a line for instance, have different coordinates: start point of L1 is x=1.0012, y=51.012 and end point is x=1.0000, y=51.000. The fastest solution is to save the model as *.e2k and import it again, this solution applies only for models created using the same versions.

Also, “Overkill” command in AutoCAD will eliminate this kind of errors (cleaning up the DXF)
