AREA_​FORM_​TOP_​GLOBAL, AREA_​FORM_​BOTTOM_​GLOBAL, AREA_​FORM_​SIDE_​GLOBAL

This is a template attribute. Template attributes can be used in filtering, or to retrieve data from the model to use in drawings and reports. For example, when you create a report, Tekla Structures replaces the attributes added in the report template with the corresponding object property values.

These template attributes show the area of faces whose normal vector points in the following directions in the global coordinate system:

  • Top of form (AREA_FORM_TOP_GLOBAL)

  • Bottom of form (AREA_FORM_BOTTOM_GLOBAL)

  • Form sides (AREA_FORM_SIDE_GLOBAL)

Use these template attributes with the CAST_UNIT content type to report the formwork areas of cast-in-place cast units. These attributes and areas are not dependent on the Top-in-form face settings.

To report the formwork areas of precast cast units, use the template attributes AREA_FORM_TOP, AREA_FORM_BOTTOM, and AREA_FORM_SIDE.
