Topic: Monitoring Points


I have a problem with Atena 3D, with the monitoring points. I have build the "Tutorial for Program ATENA 3D", and had defined the monoring points for displacements and for reactions. After pressing the run button, I want to modify the left window to show me a load-dispalcement-diagram. When I try to change it, there is a window shows an error:

"No monitors are available - it is not possible to define grapf parameters..."

I started the tutorial three times, one time it worked, but I don´t know why.

But in my real project, it does not work too, and I do not know why.

Does someone know this problem and how it can be solved?
Thanks for any help.

Dear pk301,
you can follow Troubleshooting 2.1.1 and send us the model so we can try to identify the problem.

Re: Monitoring Points

Dear pk301, you are probably just clicking too fast - the monitors become available when the first load steps is completed and their data available. Moreover, to see a curve/line in the graph, at least 2 completed steps are needed.


Re: Monitoring Points

Dear dpryl,

that was exactly the problem. I did not know, that I have to wait till the first step ist completed.

Thanks for your help, now the monitoring points are available.
