View Full Version : Automatic section in a formwork plan

2010-07-24, 07:47 AM
Hi everyone.
In my country (Romania) in a formwork plan must be sections with every beam and wall as it looks in the atached picture.

I tried to do this in ASD2011-formwork, but i coudn't find any way to do this from the editing layout of a story plan (of course I can draw it with lines like in Autocad but i didn't mean that).

I see that I can only make a vertical section in model for the whole structure. Than i have to make details with every beam I need. Than this details i have to put in the layout where i need. This way i described is a bit comlicated and it takes me more time to make it than I do it with Autocad with copy-paste.
Does anyone know how to to this more simple?

Usually people use Revit for formworks, but....

Go to the plan and make section where you want to see the beams. Copy the created section over the plan, and trim the slab at the distance you wish. (or not)

I tell you it can be done.

Thanks for the answer. You make almoast the same as I said. In this way I have to edit the section and delete the axes and title.
But if I update at the section it apears again. So at the final of a project I have to verify the plans for unwanted things.
What I wish is to make this in a BIM way, and with a minimum work.

My advice:

Make the section, copy it to another drawing (or export it to dwg) and then paste it over the final drawing. In this way it doesn't matter that you update the original drawing since the copied section doesn't change.

One again, i recommend you to pass on Revit. I heard that ASD Formwork hasn't been update since ACAD2006 (no annotation, no multileader).

If you have further questions contact me on pm.

Salut, numele meu este Daniel, am aceasi problema cu generarea planului Cofraj. Ai reusit sa gasesti ceva setare pentru generarea planului Cofraj?

Salut Daniel, nu merge facut automat in Formwork. Din ce s-a discutat am inteles ca merge mai bine pe Revit, dar nu am vazut vreo modalitate de a face asta foarte repede.
