The utilization of the fast working massively parallel computers in solving intense numerical problems, in the field of structural engineering left disappointed many of practical engineers. The solving large systems of equations appears to be effective, while pre-processing a tedious task taking time which is not comparable with fast working solvers. This paper presents a method tools for effective pre-processing. By developing this method the effectiveness of the solvers can be improved as well create a positive momentum in the CAD, CAE engineering applications. The method described herein, although it was developed on the background of the Framed Structures can be applied to a wide range of continuum problems in various branches of the modern numerical computing.
