    Problem with getting X bracing to work

    The X bracing Tab does not work on the model (file attached), or there are problems with the model due to my
    doing something wrong. I click on the columns, the lower and upper horzontal beams and base plates Ithen fill
    out the design selection pages. When they are complete, I then Push the enter button but nothing shows on the
    model. I.E. something is Messed up.

    Will some knowledgeable person look this model over and find out what is wrong. Some backgrond: the workframe
    was made frome a AutoCad wireframe model which I "traced over with workframe members. When I placed some of the
    Column profiles on the model the centerline of the colums are not on thes lines. (I only caught this later after beams
    and many connections were designrd.)

    Is this the Problem with Bracing not working? Will I need to start over by eliminating all profiles and connections or start over by remaking the workframe? If I start a new WorkFramewill I lose all of the saved connection?

    Thanks for your help!, Billbe

      Have you tried modeling your bracing from a framing elevation. I've been told it was easier to make it right on axis this way...

        To mdravies and alex4141,
        Thank you for your replies. Mdravies, my model is saved as a .dwg file. I don't know how to save it in another format. alex4141, I don't exactly understand your comment, but maybe I need to put the USC on the intersection of the work frame column and beam line and then try to install the X braces?

          Works fine for me. I saw the "Connection mark" where you've placed the Bracing. What I've done:
          Select your bracings (the white circle).
          Right Click
          "Modify"
          Apply
          Close.

          I don't know if you do something wrong or is just an ASD bug. I always hit apply before placing a connection or a macro, to be sure it "looks" ok. Then I close it.

            the right click "modify" apply Close didn't work on my model.

              Thanks for answers to my question.

              I redrew my workframe and the bracing worked. I have another question for the educators!
              I am using welded plate connections between frame and bracing. Any way to stop welding of plate to both column and beam without changing each plate to only welded to beams?

                First:

                Sorry for not seeing you answer. Please send me an email next time I don't answer for more then 2 days.

                Second:
                I'm not pretty sure I understand want you want, but I will try to decrease the offset distances, such that the plate doesn't touch the column.
