To help the design process and provide structural engineers with the right tools at the right time, Robot Structural Analysis Professional provides the cladding tool for applying loads and helping to streamline the process.
The Cladding tool is an auxiliary object used to define loads. Structural Engineers can take advantage of cladding when generating bar loads from planar objects and snow/wind loads in 3D geometry. It allows to define real structure objects that do not participate in the load capacity of a structure, such as panel walls and roofing. And then they can apply planar, linear and concentrated loads to claddings.
