Possible workflows:








5. With the commands in the Results panel, the user can explore and adjust the calculated reinforcement of an element and generate reports based on these results.

6. Commands in the Options panel are used for adjusting display settings (colors, text dimensions, hidden/ visible objects, etc.).




7. The Bill of Materials command in the Tools panel generates an estimative quantity of materials and costs for reinforced concrete elements.




Below the Design Modules ribbon are available more options, depending on the structural element type:











Interactive Drawing






Three viewports are available for the interaction curves: one displaying the 3D curve N-Mx-My and two planar views, N-M and Mx-My. With this graphic representation, the user can easily control the effects of the reinforcement changes on the column capacity.
