See the ANSYS ACT 2023 R1
API and XML Online Reference Guide.

More specfic:

Under the ConnectionGroup Class there is no method called Addbeam().

On the other hand, and under the Connections class as you found out, that is where the Addbeam method exists.

So this is how the API works and how we need to use it (so Addbeam method is under the Connections class and not Connection group). The API is basically just following how we define connections and connection groups in mechanical (and what can be under a connection group, e.g., only contacts, joints, spotwelds). See the help manual for this (search for connection groups and Connection Features and Operations)



All the best
