This looks right,

so the only change I detect is in Line 1 of script - change of STAAD PLANE FRAME to SPACE FRAME

Why does this happen ? when all the other beams were showing appropriate resul ...

The BMs are visible, they are just not correct for the marked beams.

The BM near the intersection of beams AB and perpendicular beams should not be zero. STAAD is treating them like individual bea ...
