Pour break adaptivity

Pour breaks are adaptive to changes in cast-in-place concrete parts and pour objects. This means that if you change the geometry or location of a cast-in-place concrete part or pour object, its pour breaks change accordingly.

If you delete a cast-in-place concrete part, its pour breaks disappear as well.

If you modify a cast-in-place concrete structure in any of the following ways, its pour breaks adapt:

  • Change the profile or dimensions of a part
  • Add or remove cuts or fittings
  • Change chamfer shape or dimensions
  • Add or remove parts of the cast-in-place concrete structure by:
    • Changing the cast unit type of a part from Precast to Cast in place or vice versa
    • Changing the pour phase of a part
    • Changing the concrete grade of a part
    • Moving, copying, or deleting parts

If you move a cast-in-place concrete part outside its pour breaks, the pour breaks disappear. If you move a part so that it still hits one or more pour breaks, the pour breaks that are inside the part stay in their original locations and adapt to the part in the new location.

If you copy or move a pour break and it hits a cast-in-place concrete part in the destination location, the pour break adapts to the part. Also the pour breaks that you copy from another model adapt to the parts in the model they are copied to.

If a pour break is dependent on another pour break that is split or deleted, the dependent pour break is deleted as well. If a pour break is dependent on another pour break that is moved, the dependent pour break adapts inside the pour object, as long as the pour break plane can touch the moved pour break.

If a pour break is split so that it becomes partial, the pour break is deleted. A partial pour break can only split a cast-in-place part or pour object in conjunction with other pour breaks.
