6 © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 6 MACC Conference 2013 Customizing Dynamic Views to Optimize Drawing Production AECOsim Ss4 - Modify Structural Attributes Tools –A new variant of the existing Modify Structural Attributes tool improves modifications to Structural members by allowing explicit modifications to be applied to multiple elements. That is, the new variant of Modify Structural Attributes acts as an explicit Change Structural Attributes tool. Structural Modeling Practices

7 © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 7 MACC Conference 2013 Customizing Dynamic Views to Optimize Drawing Production AECOsim Ss4 – Key-in Only Modify Structural Attributes Tool Variant –A new Modify Structural Attributes variant populates its settings by persisting the user defined settings rather than populating them with values taken from the selected members. It increases productivity by “remembering” previously applied changes that can be repeatedly applied until changed explicitly. Structural Modeling Practices

12 © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 12 MACC Conference 2013 Customizing Dynamic Views to Optimize Drawing Production Dynamic Views – Steel Framing Plans We will use the delivered AECOsim Building Designer Project called BuildingSample_US to generate Structural Steel Plans using a variety of Drawing Composition methods. 1. Access the delivered project by selecting the “BuildingSample_US” Project in the Microstation Manager. This will place you in the project Designs folder. Dynamic Views – Structural Discipline Dynamic Views is a general name that encompasses several related technologies which share a common goal of making model analysis and documentation more interactive and intuitive. Gone are the days when designs were just static views. They are replaced by the ability to create live, intelligent plans and sections of a design composition that update automatically as the design evolves.

13 © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 13 MACC Conference 2013 Customizing Dynamic Views to Optimize Drawing Production Steel Framing Plans 2. Open the file S_Steel-LoRise.dgn 3. Turn off the Concrete Slabs in all views (S-SLAB-CONC). 4. Turn on the “Annotation Scale” Lock 5. Select the Drawings and Composition Task from the task based menu. There are many options that you can use to generate Dynamic Views, or Plans, from your models. Let’s explore the different options available in AECOsim Building Designer. Dynamic Views – Structural Discipline

14 © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 14 MACC Conference 2013 Customizing Dynamic Views to Optimize Drawing Production Steel Framing Plans 6. From the Drawing Composition Task, select the first option on row “R”, Place Plan Callout. This option will allow a “User Defined” cut location in the model. 7. Change the “Drawing Seed” in the Place Callout tool settings to: Struct – Framing Plan. Note that there are many different Structural plan options for users to choose from, like Concrete Framing Plans and more robust Analytical Framing plans for analytical models coming from ISM, or RAM imports. Dynamic Views – Structural Discipline

15 © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 15 MACC Conference 2013 Customizing Dynamic Views to Optimize Drawing Production Steel Framing Plans 8. Ensure the “Create Drawing” option is checked.
