Changing Structure Type

If you have a single-mast structure (single track cantilevers, two track cantilevers, twin/triple cantilevers, self supporting anchors, and attachment points) and you want to change its structure type, here's how you do it.

Step 1: Navigate to the 'Structures' section of the Lineardraft toolbar

Step 2: Click the 'Adjust' button

Step 3: Click on the structure which you want to change type

This will open the 'Edit Structure' window.

Step 4: Click on the 'Type' dropdown and select a new structure type

This list includes all applicable single-mast structures. It is not possible to convert a single-mast structure to a portal

If you have any equipment, backties, or ornaments attached to your structure, any structure types that are not compatible with these components will not be shown in the dropdown list.

Please note: When you change structure type, the mast bearing and foundation bearing are reset to their default positions for the chosen structure type.

Step 5: Click 'Confirm'

This will close the 'Edit Structure' window and make your changes, updating the 3D model, structure symbol, and structure box information.
