3D Renderer (Beam)

Viewing your Beam and analysis results in 3D

The 3D renderer in SkyCiv Beam Software allows you to visualize your beam model in 3D. Note that the cross-section can be seen to scale to the length of your beam. You can left-click to rotate, right-click to drag your beam, and use the mouse wheel to zoom/scale the renderer. You can select results to view using the dropdown at the top left of the renderer. To change the view of your model, use the dropdown at the top right of the renderer.

Error: No Results

If you receive the following message and see no 3D render of your beam it means that the Section Builder was not used to create a section for your beam. This could have happened in two ways.

Either,

  • no section was added at all,
  • or only Young’s Modulus (E) and Moment of Inertia (Ix) values were directly inputted in the ‘Add/Edit Section’ pop up.

SkyCiv Beam No Section

In this case, to access the renderer return to the model using the blue ‘model’ button on the top left of the results page. Use the “Adding a Section” documentation to learn how to add a section to your model. Once you successfully add a section to your model, Solve your beam to access SkyCiv’s 3D Rendering.
