Re: Plastic Hinge Animation Result

Seimobuild is easier to use than the other softwares that our firm have been using.

Customizing Seismobuild Report

Is there a way we can customize the report output from Sesimobuild like incorporating standard company Title sheet with company logo, Project Title, Author etc?

Also is it possible to have customize view of the perspective view sections and elevations are these possible to edit?

Backbone Curve Graph

Is there a way that we can see the backbone curve (whether bi-linear or trilinear) adopted for a non linear component i.e. plastic hinge in accordance with asce 41 guidelines?
