If you are interested in pier and spandrel forces, I would check only the 1D analysis results. The 2D analysis results in particular can be massive (we’re essentially sending all results at every node of the FEM mesh for every load combo). Let me know how that goes for you.
Currently we’re sending all the results that ETABS will give us which is almost so much data that it’s not super helpful. Adding some abbreviated analysis results is high up on my list of todos for the connector.
Hi @connor. Changing the advanced settings to only Send 1D Analysis Results unfortunately didn’t prove to be a quick fix. The Send tried running for over an hour.
The model was further simplified as follows:
One wall elevation with pier assignments
Only 8 entries of pier forces to extract / send
Advanced settings as mentioned above
Selection again as: Categories → Pier
After this I then cancelled the send. An interesting observation though, when I changed the selection to “Everything”, the Send seemed to work (i.e. it completed). However, when interrogating the commit, the AnalysisResults seem to be poppulated with nulls / aren’t to be seen.
Hmm that is strange. Step one is to make sure that your model has been run and actually has analysis results. Assuming that is the case here, this requires a bit more investigation. Which version of the connector are you using?
thanks for your response! I downloaded the 2.13.0-alpha2 version and tested the same thing out. The ETABS Connector now shows an entry for “AnalysisResults” being created !
I am however struggling to see how this can be accessed on the Speckle Stream (online). Results don’t show up on a element property (e.g. when selecting a wall) or when navigating through Data View > Analysis Results > results1D (see below picture). I fear I may be missing something simple here (if so, sorry in advance ).
It looks like the CSI api is only giving me results after I hit the “Start Design/Check” for the desired elements. Are you doing that? If not then could you give that a shot?
It’s a bit confusing how after just hitting “Run” the api isn’t giving any analysis results even though you can view them in the tables so results are clearly availible. I am going to investigate this further.
Thanks for the response! No, I didn’t hit the Start Design/Check in ETABS, as I am looking to run design checks for piers outside of ETABS (in verified design spreadsheets). But I’ve tried that out now and I can see Pier Forces now after hitting the Design Check in ETABS.
Correct, it is a bit confusing. It would be cool if we can avoid having to do this step of design checks in ETABS.
