Thanks and flutter done; create node by offset from picked node?

[ Edited ]

I got my flutter analses done before my trial ended; thanks to those here and elsewhere who helped. I'll be sending an email.

Instead of importing FEM data, I want to try creating a model from scratch that consists entirely of line elements and plates. Many times I want to create a new node/point that is a vectored offset from an existing node.

 

Granted, most people are not constructing line models.

 

Have I missed quick ways to make a new node offset from a previous node?

 

Thanks again,

sorry for the elementary flutter niche questions.

Mesh, Copy, Node, pick the node or multiple nodes, enter the offset vector.

 

Mark.

Thnaks Mark.

 

I owe you the standard payment of a beer. I would NEVER have expected that command to be buried there. I kept looking at the create element node menu.
