1. EXAMPLE OF APPLICATION OF THE AUTOCAD STRUCTURAL DETAILING - FORMWORK DRAWINGS PROGRAM: PROJECT OF A BUILDING
Use AutoCAD Structural Detailing - Formwork Drawings for preparing a project of a building and the appropriate drawings (foundation plan, plans of stories, vertical sections through the building, formwork drawings of single structure elements). The drawing below shows a 3D view of a defined building.

To use this documentation, follow these basic usage rules: Any icon symbol - click the icon with the left mouse button. {x} - select the x option from the dialog. text - enter the underlined text on the command line of the program, and press Enter. LMC and RMC - use the mouse buttons (Left Mouse Click and Right Mouse Click, respectively).

on the desktop (or click Start To start AutoCAD Structural Detailing - Formwork Drawings, click menu > AutoCAD Structural Detailing), and then select the Formwork Drawings module. The software will include options (such as an extended menu, an additional toolbar, tabs and the Object Inspector dialog) for making structure model and drawings.

1.6.1 Generation of formwork drawings


1. On the Positions tab of the Object Inspector dialog, select W 0_4 in the tree 2. RMC W 0_4, and click Export formwork drawings to Reinforcement Selects the structure element (wall) named W 0_4.

Selecting this from the context menu lets you run automatically AutoCAD Structural Detailing - Reinforcement in order to create a formwork drawing of a selected element (position). The Formwork drawing wizard dialog displays. Indicates the drawing position.

3. In the left part of the Formwork drawing wizard dialog, LMC the position: 4. For New file, enter the file name (for example, Formwork_drawing) 5. Next >>

Specifies a name of the file where a formwork drawing will be generated.

Changes the appearance of the Formwork drawing wizard dialog and assumes default values (layout, scale, and drawing type). Closes the Formwork drawing wizard dialog, and automatically creates a formwork drawing of a selected structure element in AutoCAD Structural Detailing Reinforcement. NOTE: In AutoCAD Structural Detailing Reinforcement, a Formwork drawings toolbar displays. Use it to modify graphical parameters of a formwork drawing and create sections at a user-defined place. Determines the location of a formwork drawing of a selected structure element. Displays the position W 0_4 Front view in the graphical viewer using the maximal possible zoom.

7. LMC to indicate an insertion point in the drawing 8. On the Positions tab of the Object Inspector dialog, doubleclick W 0_4 Front view in the tree 9. LMC the symbol of section 2 10. LMC the middle grip , LMC again to specify the target location (see the drawing below) defining the section depth

The section symbol is highlighted. Modifies the section depth, and updates the drawing W_ 04 Section 2-2 automatically.

(Create section)

Lets you define a section at the user-defined place. You are prompted to select objects. Selects objects.

12. LMC the wall in the graphical viewer 13. Enter

Accepts selection of the object. You are prompted to pick the first section point. Determines successive points that define the section. You are prompted to define the section depth/direction. Defines the section depth. You are prompted to pick the section insertion point.

14. LMC point 1, and then point 2 (see the drawing below) 15. LMC point 3

17. In a similar way, formwork drawings can be created for an arbitrary number of appropriate structure elements. 18. LMC Window in the main menu, and select the name of the initial file in AutoCAD Structural Detailing - Formwork Drawings Returns to the initial file in AutoCAD Structural Detailing Formwork Drawings. NOTE: On the Positions tab in AutoCAD Structural Detailing - Formwork Drawings, positions are marked with the icon , which means that for a given position there is a formwork drawing created in AutoCAD Structural Detailing Reinforcement. Double-clicking this icon automatically runs AutoCAD Structural Detailing Reinforcement, and opens the formwork drawing of the given position.

1.6.2 Generation of reinforcement for elements


1. On the Positions tab of the Object Inspector dialog, select SF 1 in the tree 2. RMC SF 1, and click Automatic reinforcement Selects the structure element (spread footing) named SF 1.

Selecting this from the context menu lets you create automatically a reinforcement drawing for a selected element (position). The Formwork drawing wizard dialog displays. Indicates the drawing position.

3. In the left part of the Formwork drawing wizard dialog, LMC

4. In the right part of the Formwork drawing wizard dialog, LMC the created file:

Indicates the file where a formwork reinforcement will be generated.

7. Insert

Inserts a formwork drawing with reinforcement. You are prompted to specify the Position number. Accepts the number of the reinforcement position. The AutoCAD Structural Detailing - Reinforcement macro appropriate for a chosen structure element type is launched. You are prompted to specify a second point. Determines the location of the AutoCAD Structural Detailing - Reinforcement macro for a selected structure element type (a drawing of a spread footing with reinforcement) in the drawing.

8. Enter

9. LMC an insertion point of the macro

10. In a similar way, formwork drawings can be created for other structure elements.

NOTE: Reinforcement drawings cannot be created automatically for every structure element. To ensure that a given element can be reinforced automatically, it has to fulfill appropriate geometrical conditions included in the AutoCAD Structural Detailing - Reinforcement macros.
