The Zone Settings dialog consists of five tabs: "General", "Text", "Reports", "Units" and "Components". Each of these tabs has user-changeable parameters.

Zone Settings Command

The zone that appears on the screen after running the zone command is located in the auxiliary toolbar.

You can access it under the Ribbon menu Home tab, Zone title.

General Tab

Specifications

Thickness

Zone thickness is entered. Zone thickness is the value measured from the story floor upwards. If the thickness of the zone is increased, the zone becomes thicker upwards.

Elevation

Zone elevation is entered. When the elevation is zero, the lower surface of the zone coincides with the story base. If a positive value is entered, the zone rises up from the story floor, if a negative value is entered, it falls under the story floor.

Color

The zone is the color of the border lines. When the color box is clicked, the appropriate color is selected from the window that opens.

Use plasters for area calculation

If the use plasters for area calculation option is selected, the plaster calculation becomes active. If it is automatically marked, the area between the wall plaster and the wall is deducted from the zone area while calculating the zone area and the area value found is written on the zone. If the percentage is marked, while calculating the zone area, the zone area is deducted as the percentage of the value written in the "Percentage" line and this value is written on the zone. If the thickness is marked, while calculating the zone area, the plaster thickness is taken into account as the value entered in this line and the area between the plaster and the wall is deducted from the zone area. If the use plasters for area calculation option is not selected, plaster thicknesses are not taken into account in the zone area calculation.

Material

The material to be used on the upper, lower and other surfaces of the zone is selected from the list. Surfaces are covered with the selected material and displayed as such in renderings.

Texture length is entered into the world length. For example; If 1 is entered, the selected material texture is taken as 1 meter and covered on the relevant walls.

The angle is the angle of the texture.

Offset the U and V shifting. The motion value in the x and y plane is entered.

With U and V mirroring, the texture is symmetrical with respect to the y and x planes.

By selecting the single material option, the material selected in "Top material" is used on all surfaces of the zone.

Use composite material

Composite materials allow the zone to be drawn in a different material view in the section. If checked, it allows the use of materials defined in the "Composite Material" editor. After the row is marked, one of the composite materials in the list below is selected with the left mouse button. Changes the view of the zone in section according to the selected composite material.

Reversed composite material

If marked, the materials used in the zone are reversed. When the section is taken, the top hatching in the zone section area appears at the bottom, the bottom hatch at the top.

Trimmed area drawing

Using the "Trim to roof" command, it is marked if it is desired to show the section created with the zone and roof on the plan. If it is not desired, it is not marked. Color and line type determine the visual settings of the intersection on the plan.

Fill zone region

It gives color to the zone.

Zone area calculation

When the zone is placed, if there is a wall, stair or column object in the zone, it is used to subtract the total area of ​​these objects from the total area of ​​the zone while calculating the zone area.

If Consider Columns is checked, ZoneArea Net = Zone Area - Area of ​​Columns Within the Zone

If Consider stairs is checked, ZoneArea Net = Zone Area - Area of ​​Stairs Within the Zone

If the wall is marked, ZoneArea Net = Area I Area - Area of ​​Walls within the Zone

One or more of the options can be marked at the same time.

Components Tab

Add new components: Assigns the building materials defined for the detailed building components metering to the wall object.

  • Click the Add New Component button.

  • The Components Selection dialog will open.

  • In this dialog, click on the folder related to the material from the list on the left. Choose the material you want to use.

  • Set the parameters on the right.

  • Click the OK button. The "Component Selection" dialog will be closed. A summary line of the material will appear in the Components tab. More than one material assignment can be made to an object.

The parameters in the use section of the component selection dialog are:

No modification: The amount of material to be assigned for the object in question is marked when it is desired to be used in the size that was previously specified in the material definition.

Percentage: This line is marked when it is desired to be used with the percentage of the amount previously determined in the material definition, as much as the value entered in the "Value 1" line in the same dialog. For example, if the material quantity is 70, if the line “Value 1” says 40, it means the material amount will be used up to 40 * 70%.

Override: This line is marked so that the quantity entered in the “Value 1” line in the same dialog will be used instead of the quantity previously determined in the material definition.

Multiplier: This line is marked in order to use the value found at the end of the multiplication of the value entered in the "Value 1" line in the same dialog with the amount previously determined in the material definition.

Fraction: This line is marked so that the amount determined in the material definition before will be used as the fraction value created by the values ​​entered in the "Value 1" and "Value 2" lines in the same dialog. "Value 1" is the denominator "Value 2" is the denominator.

Proportional to: It is determined to what scale-area, circumference, length etc.-, region-side area, top, edge etc.- the material will be proportioned to. The content of the proportional list box is automatically determined according to the object and the size of the material. For example, a different list will be created if an operation is made for the column, a different list will be created for the library, a different list for the volume, and a different list for the field.

Following are the lines that appear in the proportion list according to the zone and material size.
