Location: 03 Concrete A 3D concrete beam with rebars, and/or a 2D symbol of a concrete beam section. Placed in... Model means a 3D beam that will show up in plan and section. Note that the actual placement will very likely take place in the plan window. 2D Detail means a 2D symbol of the section through the beam, suitable

The new templates for Archicad 11 have an improved fill pattern for concrete in section, Concrete Random. I got it from Andy Thomson. As you can see it has more size variety in the specks and is more random overall. I've chosen to leave the old fill in place with its attribute ID unchanged. Why. To avoid potential conflicts when
This is a complicated condition. It's surrounded by ordinary modeling elements, but it's difficult to weave those elements together such that it all cleans up and looks correct in section. Here's the ordinary elements by themselves. I put in some detail objects for clarity: The joist deck slab is basically right. The concrete slab needs to reach in to
Location: 05 Metals / 2D Steel A 2D symbol to draw rebars in concrete structures. Arrangement: Same as the Multiply command. Spread will place bars across the length of the object using the Spacing OC. Distribute will space the Quantity of bars evenly along the length. You might use Distribute in a footing detail, where the spec would call
Location: 03 Concrete A 2D symbol to lay over a footing rectangle, in wall sections, for example. It can draw the rebars, the notch for the foundation wall, and the lines at the edge of an adjacent slab. It can draw the outline of the footing, as well as the fill, but for most cases it shouldn't be needed. I
Location: 03 Concrete The main parameters are the height, width, and thickness. By default, the overlap matches the thickness, and the tread is double the thickness. To change either value, set the parameters to other than zero. The length of the object cannot be controlled. The idea is to let the object tell how much length is needed to step
Location: 03 Concrete A slab edge, trazezoidal or triangular. Placed under/adjacent to an element of the same fill, it will clean up in section. There was an 8 version of this, but I never wrote it up. I don't recommend running these everywhere, but a little piece at the section cut helps the section a lot. One less thing to
