Formwork design - First phase (Walls)

The modulation allows to know exactly how many formwork, types and sizes that are required for a construction project, as well as they should be assembled. It must come from the architectural plans provided by the manufacturer, and at first you must draw the axes of the walls, as shown in the picture below. The lengths of the axes lengths must match the actual project, in order that the modulation is real. Each of the two sides of the axis will be associated properties that characterize it, according to the types handled by the system: wall (red), door (green), window (blue), and edge of slab (yellow).

Properties windows axes wall.

    

Based on the above information is ordered to perform the modulation system of walls, automatically generating three types of formwork: walls, tops of doors and windows, and walls with slab joints. This modulation is stored in the CAD file in different layers.

Formwork design - Second phase (Slabs)

For the second phase of the modulation is to draw the slab areas, located exactly under the left by the formwork for wall and slab joints. Tile areas are represented by rectangles, each of which will be associated properties that characterize it, according to the types handled by the system: slab (purple), post and beam (blue) and fit (cyan).

Based on the above information tells the system to perform the modulation of slabs, automatically generating three types of formwork, slabs, pillars and beams, and feedback. This modulation is stored in the CAD file in different layers.
