With the Beam to Shearwall command, beams are converted to shearwalls. At any stage of architectural and structural projects, the need to transform shearwalls with two columns inserted such as defined slab beams, basement perimeter shearwalls may be felt. Existing slabs and beams must be deleted in order to define a shearwall instead of a beam. With the beam to shearwall command, beams are converted to shearwalls at once without deleting slabs and beams.
