Option Description

Beam end rests on the column.

Beam end rests on the column.

Selection order

  1. Select the main part (column).
  2. Select the secondary part (beam/wall/panel).

Picture tab

Use the Picture tab to define cut-out shapes and cut-out dimensions of the column and the beam.

Cut-out dimensions

Option Description

Cut-outs of the main part and the secondary part in the horizontal direction.

The space between the column and the beam can be defined at both sides. For tapered openings you can define how much the opening is reduced.

Example:

Cut-outs of the main part and the secondary part in the vertical direction.

The space between the column and the beam can be defined at both sides. For tapered openings you can define how much the opening is reduced.

Example:

Select the how the opening is reduced.

The options are:

  • From beam centerline
  • From beam edges

Cut-out shape

Option Description

Cut around the secondary part

Cut-out to the top of the column

Cut-out to the bottom of the column

Full vertical cut-out

No cut-out

Column tab

Use the Column tab to define how the top of the column is modified.

Column extension

Define the column extension. If you do not enter any values, the column is extended to its original top level.

Description

1

Column extension in the vertical direction from the beam top.

This dimesion has the highest priority among the three dimensions (1, 3, 4) for defining the column extension.

2

Select wether the top of the column is perpendicular or parallel to the beam.

Perpendicular:

Parallel with top of beam:

3

Column extension in the vertical direction.

4

Column extension in the vertical direction from the beam bottom.
