2 Structural Modeling Practices Organize models as needed for the projectMain FramingSecondary FramingFoundationsImported – Updated analysis modelsCopingLarge to smallTypical connectionsAECOsim Ss4 - Modify Structural Attributes Tools
3 Grid SystemsThe following Grid Systems features are provided to extend the capabilities for creating, modifying and managing grid systems:Create multiple gridsCreate orthographic and radial gridsSupported by Building Dynamic ViewsSupported by Structural Building Designer’s Automated Structural Drawings functionalityGrids can be rotated and offset from the originGrid intersections are snappable
4 Grid Systems Offset grid lines and grid labels Insert or remove grid lines at any timePreview grids by selecting floorsCreate and update grid system models at each floor elevation with a single clickSymbology settings changes are globally appliedThe ability to override global offsets for individual grid lines
5 Grid SystemsAutomatically regenerates legacy grid systems created with the existing Column Grid toolAutomatically generates grid systems from grid data imported with Bentley Structural Synchronizer (ISM) repositoriesSupports grid systems created in RAM Structural System including round tripping of changes via Bentley Structural Synchronizer (ISM)
6 Structural Modeling Practices AECOsim Ss4 - Modify Structural Attributes ToolsA 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.
7 Structural Modeling Practices AECOsim Ss4 – Key-in Only Modify Structural Attributes Tool VariantA 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.
8 Structural Modeling Practices Place Deck ToolNatively construct and place fully modeled steel decks and composite decksComposite decks contain both steel decking and concrete slab componentsImport detailed steel and composite deck information and elementsNew steel/composite decks and changes to existing (imported or native) composite decks can be exported
12 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.Dynamic ViewsSteel Framing PlansWe will use the delivered AECOsim Building Designer Project called BuildingSample_US to generate Structural Steel Plans using a variety of Drawing Composition methods.Access the delivered project by selecting the “BuildingSample_US” Project in the Microstation Manager. This will place you in the project Designs folder.
13 Dynamic Views – Structural Discipline Steel Framing PlansOpen the file S_Steel-LoRise.dgnTurn off the Concrete Slabs in all views (S-SLAB-CONC).Turn on the “Annotation Scale” LockSelect 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.
14 Dynamic Views – Structural Discipline Steel Framing PlansFrom 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.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.
15 Dynamic Views – Structural Discipline Steel Framing PlansEnsure the “Create Drawing” option is checked.Defining the Cut LocationWorking in View 4 (Front View), left click above the third floor framing and drag the cursor across the floor and left click to define the cut location.Move the cursor down to define the depth of the cut.Note: Using the Left, or Right views when generating the callouts will automatically rotate the Drawing Plan 90 degrees on your sheet file.
16 Dynamic Views – Structural Discipline Steel Framing PlansEnter the name THIRD FLOOR FRAMING PLAN.This will be the named of the Dynamic View, or Saved View that will be used to generate our steel framing plan.Generating the Drawing and Sheet ModelsCheck the box next to “Filename” under Create Drawing ModelClick on the “Create New Drawing File” IconDefine the Name of the “Drawing” file, matching the name of the Dynamic View above, set the scale to 1/8”=1’-0”This will automatically generate the Drawing file in the “Drawings” folder in the Project Dataset.
17 Dynamic Views – Structural Discipline Steel Framing PlansCheck the box next to “Filename” under Create Sheet ModelClick on the “Create New Sheet File” IconDefine the Name of the “Sheet” file, S1.03This will automatically generate the Sheet file in the “Sheets” folder in the Project Dataset.Set the sheet Annotation Scale to “Full Size” and Details Scale: to 1/8”=1’-0”.Check the “Open Model” checkboxClick OK.
18 Dynamic Views – Structural Discipline Steel Framing PlansYour Drawing and Sheet have been created using the Dynamic View “Place Plan Callout Method”.Note how your “Drawing Title” was automatically created for the framing plan and placed in the drawing. Now we need to change the Sheet Properties to reflect the sheet number.Select the “Models” Icon from Main Menu.
19 Dynamic Views – Structural Discipline Steel Framing PlansChange the “Sheet Name” to S1.03Click OKThe Sheet number is now changed in the Drawing Title
20 Dynamic Views – Structural Discipline Steel Framing PlansYou have just created a Dynamic View and Sheet of the Third Floor Framing in just a matter of a couple of minutes.Now let’s navigate back to the 3D model via Bentley’s Hypermodel technology.Hover your cursor over the Drawing TitleSelect the Open Design Model Icon from the pop-up menuThis will navigate you back to the Design Model where the Drawing was derived fromThere are also two additional icons on the pop-up menu. Open the Drawing Model to navigate to the Drawing, or Show Callouts, which will display all Callouts from other models that intersect the cutting plane of the drawing.
21 Dynamic Views – Structural Discipline Steel Framing PlansNow that we are back in the Design Model we can look closer at Bentley’s Hypermodel technologyHypermodel Design ReviewChange the view to IsometricNote how the model was “clipped” at your framing plan location and the Drawing Rules along with the section sizes and Drawing Title are Displayed.Let’s change a few settings and see how we can use this feature to aid in modeling of objects, or reviewing of additional annotation in our sheet files.
22 Dynamic Views – Structural Discipline Steel Framing PlansHover over the Yellow Floor Plan “Marker” and uncheck the last icon “Display Sheet Annotation” from the pop- up menu.Note the other icons in the pop-up menu, apply Clip Model by Callout, Show Callouts, Apply Options and Open Target (File). We will discuss these later in this lecture.Clear the Clip Volume using the Clear Active Clip Volume tool found on the Window Tool bar.This will remove the Drawing Styles that came from your sheet file.Change the Display Style to “Illustration”
23 Dynamic Views – Structural Discipline Steel Framing PlansNow that we have returned to our structural model and set our display style to our standard we can now explore another method to create Dynamic Views, specifically Steel Framing PlansCreate Plan View(s) OptionSelect the Create Plan View(s) option from the Drawing Composition task based menu.There are Three methods in the Create Plan tool settings. Floor Plan User Defined, Floor Plan by Floor, Floor Plan by Set. We will review our options for each, but utilize the Floor Plan by Set method.
24 Dynamic Views – Structural Discipline Steel Framing PlansSelect the first icon on the tool settings, Place Plan User Defined.Explore the Tool Settings for this method.Drawing Seed: Defines the Dynamic View Drawing seed filePlan Cut Elevation: User defined valueView Range: Can be either user Defined or Model Range, with Back, Forward and Cut distances defined by the user.
