You can access it under the ribbon menu Concrete tab, Create Drawing heading.

Usage Steps

  • Click the Beam Drawingws icon.

  • The drawing properties dialog will open.

  • Make the edits you want and click the OK button.

  • The beams of the working story will be automatically designed according to the scale and paper size specified in the drawing settings. One or more beam drawing windows can be created according to the fit in the paper. The relevant window can be selected from the list under the Window menu.

In beam drawings, the beams are arranged as blocks with rebars and dimension lines. Especially since the moving work can be done a lot, the blocks facilitate the moving process. You can split the blocks into sub-blocks with the explode. In the sub-blocks, again, the object can be divided into lines and writings with explode.
