    Just wondering if there is any interest in implementing or importing a model using an element of this type.

    CatenaryCableElement is already supported for model import and export. Actually, some distributed loads could not be applied to the element, but lumped to equivalent nodal loads. You can test it with version 2.3.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention: to set a truss as a cable, in Element Properties set CableNL to 1.
