Cannot assign Link/Truss element to stay cables


    • 35020306

      Dear all. I am currently trying to do a 2D modeling of a cable-stayed bridge. The model is comprised of horizontal girder beams (beam elements), a pylon (beam elements), and stay cables (link elements). For the stay cables, I have tried to change the element type from beam to link but for some reason it could not work. The geometry tree shows question marks in front of each line body instead of the usual green check marks. Did I miss something ? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
