20 1. If needed (and available in the current FEM-Design module), set a proper position for **working plane**. In all modules, respect that the gravity direction is always the Global Z axis direction.
21 1. Start [[image:1585047178037-661.png]] //Intermediate section// from [[image:1585047184754-580.png]] [[tabmenu>>path:/xwiki/wiki/femdesignwiki/get/Manuals/User%20Manual/Structure%20definition/Borehole%20(Geometry)/?sheet=CKEditor.ResourceDispatcher&outputSyntax=plain&language=en&type=doc&reference=Manuals.User+Manual.Basic+concept.WebHome&typed=true&parameters%5Banchor%5D=HTabmenus]] and choose [[image:1585047191579-791.png]] //Define//.

33 * //Insertion point//
34 The axis default position is on the gravity center (symbolized with yellow point in the section), but it can be set with its coordinate in the local y’z’ plane, or can be placed into special section points (e.g. plate corners) by clicking the yellow point into the requested position.

36 \\You can manage the physical and analytical eccentricity separately for intermediate sections:

39 1. (((
40 Define the direction of the cross-section y’ axis (only in 3D modules).
41 The y’ axis cannot be modified in the [[image:1585047662294-373.png]] module, so it is always parallel with the Global X-Y (working) plane.

43 1. (((
44 Define the //Intermediate section// placement.

52 1. Modify the //Intermediate section //with the [[image:1585047691021-248.png]] //Properties//.
53 1. The //Intermediate section// is part of the bar element so its layer and setting can be found like in //[[Beam>>doc:Manuals.User Manual.Structure definition.Beam (Geometry).WebHome]], [[Column>>doc:Manuals.User Manual.Structure definition.Column (Geometry).WebHome]] or [[Truss>>doc:Manuals.User Manual.Structure definition.Truss member (Geometry).WebHome]]//.
