Square prism

Notes:

  • Faces and corners are referred to using compass directions, with north oriented in the direction of positive y-axis.
  • Options 2-5 can be understood as mirror symmetries.
  • Symmetry options of sign moments were added in version 2.1.32.
  • Symmetry option 6 were added in version 2.1.32.

Hexagonal prisms

Notes:

  • The face and corner directions are listed in Assembly discontinuity factors.
  • The corner symmetries have been wrong prior to version 2.1.32. The list below corresponds to the correct values used since version 2.1.32.
  • Symmetry options 8 and 9 were added in version 2.1.32.
  • Options 2-7 can be understood as mirror symmetries.
