Transforming a Shearwall to a Beam

With the shearwall to beam command, shearwalls are converted to beams. At any stage of architectural and structural projects, existing slabs and shearwalls must be deleted in order to be able to define beams instead of shearwalls with two columns and additionally defined slabs, such as basement perimeter shearwalls. With the shearwall to beam command, shearwalls are converted into beams at once without deleting slabs and shearwalls.

Location of the Shearwall to Beam Command

You can access it from the ribbon menu Modify tab under the Transform heading.

Usage Steps

  • Click the shearwall to beam icon.

  • Choose shearwall or shearwalls that will be transformed into beams.

  • The beam settings dialog will open.

  • If necessary, change the dimension or concrete material properties.

  • Click the OK button.

  • The shearwalls will be automatically transformed to beams without disturbing the existing data input.
