Main features:

 

The reinforcement drawings mechanism allows the user to have complete control over all drawing components (views, bar schedules, title blocks, etc.)

 

The Drawing window consists of 4 parts:

 

1. The Drawing tree with a list of all drawing components (sheets, views, bar schedules...)

2. Selected drawing element properties

3. General print & drawing settings

4. Interactive drawing viewport

 

Using the tree, you can manage all drawing components.

 

Depending on the type of drawing in the tree, its properties and available commands in the context menu (accessible on right-click) are different.

 

 

The commands on the menu are the following:

 

- To add new elements (views, sheets)

- Duplicate existing ones

- Print or save the drawing to a file (.dwg format)

- Delete

- Regenerate

- Apply Style

Changes in drawing parameters can be saved as a Drawing Style (in. gbim format). When the Drawing style is applied you can decide whether to keep the previous drawings or not.

The possibility to place the views freely within the sheet and manually scale them are some of the changes that can be done through the markers (grips) when the drawing element is selected.

When you double click on a view from the tree or the viewport, you can edit most of the components of the view, such as dimensional lines, view descriptions, level symbols, bending details, and more.

The drawing can be printed or saved in DWG format.

 

The more CPU cores are allocated the more drawing elements can be generated at the same time. Please note that this depends on the maximum number of threads that can be used to regenerate views, this can be checked in Task Manager -> Performance Tab -> CPU -> Logical processors.
