Corbels and recesses (82)

Corbels and recesses (82) adds concrete parts or cuts to a concrete part. You can define the position, offsets and rotation of the added parts or cuts in several ways.

Objects created

The component can add a maximum of four parts or cuts to a concrete part. The added parts can be welded to the main part, added as parts and cast units, or as sub-assemblies.

Use for

  • Cut-out seams from concrete walls
  • Adding concrete support blocks to concrete columns or walls

Selection order

  1. Select the main part.

    The part or cut is created automatically.

Part 1 / Part 2 / Part 3 / Part 4 tab

Use the Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 or Part 4 tab to create one additional part or cut to the concrete part.

Profile

Select the profile to be added to the concrete part or used for the cut.

Select how the added part is connected to the main part.

Option Example

No part created.

Part is created.

Part is created and added to the main part.

Part is created and the main part is cut.

Main part is cut.

Part is created and cast unit is created.

Part is created and welded to the main part.

Part is created and welded to the main part, and the main part is cut.

Part is created and added as sub-assembly.

Part is created and added as sub-assembly, and the main part is cut.

Offset

Define the offset of the added part from the main part. You can set the offset also for openings.

By default, the added parts or cuts are created between the end points of the concrete part.

Coordinate system

On the Part 1 tab, select Use global xy-plane to place the corbels on the global XY plane or Use local to place the corbels on the local XY plane of the part.

Note that setting the coordinate system on the Part 1 tab also affects the corbels that are created on the Part 2 - 4 tabs.

Create diamond corbel around column

Select whether a diamond corbel is created around the column.

If you create the corbel, you cannot enter any values on the Part 2, Part 3 or Part 4 tabs.

Chamfers

You can chamfer the added parts. You can define the chamfers either as angles or as dimensions.

Positioning of the parts

You can select Extra rotation for the added parts. The added parts around the on-plane axis are rotated in the same way on any face of the main part.

Option Description

Select the side where the added parts or cuts are created.

Select the alignment of the added parts or cuts.

You can swap the end points of the added parts or cuts.

Select whether the existing cuts should be taken into account when the added parts are created.

Part 2 / Part 3 / Part 4 tab

You can add or cut more than one part at the same time. To do this, use the tabs Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4.

Configuration tab

Use the Configuration tab to define the distance in material and whether information needs to be printed.

UDA tab

Use the UDA tab to define user-defined attributes for the parts.

Use the Fabricator name, Name, Type, Nomination, Article number and Comment user-defined attributes (UDAs) to add information for the added parts or cuts.
