Show pour objects, pour marks and pour breaks in drawings

You can show pour objects and pour breaks in general arrangement drawings. You can also add automatic pour object marks.

Ensure that you have enabled pour management (set the advanced option XS_ENABLE_POUR_MANAGEMENT to TRUE.)

To show pour objects and pour breaks automatically, modify their appearance and add pour object marks:

  1. On the Drawings & reports tab, click Drawing properties > GA drawing .
  2. Load drawing properties that are as close to the ones you need as possible.
  3. In the properties dialog box, click the View button and set Show pours in drawings to Yes , and click OK.
  4. Click the Pour object button to modify the properties:
    • Content tab: Select whether you want to see the hidden lines and own hidden lines, and the edge chamfers by clicking on or off.
    • Appearance tab: Set the color and type for visible lines and hidden lines.
    • Fill tab: Select the fill for the pour object face and/or pour object section face.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Click the Pour object mark button, select the contents and appearance of the mark, and click OK.
  7. Click the Pour breaks button and set the Visibility to Visible and click OK.

    You can also select whether you want to show pour break hidden lines on the Visibility tab. On the Appearance tab you can change the color and type of the visible and hidden lines in pour breaks.

  8. Modify the other properties as required. For example, click Reinforcement and set the Visibility of all reinforcing bars to Visible to show the reinforcement in the pour drawing.
  9. Save the changed properties and click OK.

    Now you can create the general arrangement drawing using the modified properties. The pour objects, pour object marks and pour breaks are shown accordingly.

    You can also open the pour drawing and modify the properties further on drawing, view and object level.
