Show/Alter State allows you to efficiently review and modify various model attributes. For each of the attributes entities are color coded in accordance with a legend. The entity color changes to reflect changes as they are made.
In the Properties window, you can use filters for most Show/Alter State categories. The filters allow you to control both the visibility of entities by their current setting and their adjustability by their type and characteristic. Inactive but visible entities are shaded a light transparent grey whose opacity you can also control, if necessary.
To access Show/Alter State, do the following:
- Open a Review view.
- On the Review tab, click Show/Alter State.
- Go to the Properties window.
- Choose the attribute required from the Attribute list:
Attribute Description Active set single span members to be active/inactive All properties copy all properties between members Assume cracked set concrete members as either cracked or uncracked Autodesign review or modify autodesign settings BIM Status modify BIM status, or exclude members/panels from BIM import/export Braced/Bracing modify slenderness settings in each direction for concrete columns and walls Camber review and apply camber Cantilever end mark beam and column ends as cantilevers Carbon factors allows you to graphically review and override the carbon factors applied to the model Deflection Limits review and copy specified deflection limits between steel beams Diaphragm select the slab items, roof panels, and nodes to be included in diaphragms Drift check review check status, or specify members to be checked Fire proofing review and apply fire proofing Fixed/Pinned review and modify member end fixity Gravity only review and modify the gravity only setting of beams and columns Imposed load reduction review and set imposed load reductions Live load reduction review and set live load reductions (US regional code) Material Grade review and copy the material grade between members Override Effective Width
set the composite beams to which an effective width override applies
Punch check position modify assumed punching shear check positions Quick Connector Layout copy the connector layout from one beam to others Restraints review and modify lateral restraint settings of steel beams, columns, trusses and portal frames Restraints review and modify rotational stiffness settings of beam ends Section review and copy section sizes between members Seismic drift review check status, or specify members to be checked SFRS review or modify SFRS type and direction Shear Connectors copy shear connector properties between composite beams SidePlates review the status and locations where SidePlate connections have been applied to steel beams Size Constraints review and copy specified size constraints for steel beams, columns, and braces Stud auto layout modify the stud auto layout setting of composite beams Sway check review check status, or specify members to be checked Transverse reinforcement modify the transverse reinforcement of composite beams UDA review and modify user defined attributes applied to members User Defined U/R review and modify user defined utilization ratios Utilization and embodied carbon allows you to graphically focus in on high carbon usage and inefficiency.
