Introduction

Add Linear Cast In Materials (LCIM) to columns & beams are now available in IMPACT for AutoCAD. This feature allows the user to add LCIM to the two element types and makes IMPACT more flexible. 

Guide

Adding Linear Cast In Materials to columns & beams is done by using the Draw Horizontal Linear Cast In Material and Draw Vertical Linear Cast In Material.

After the draw LCIM is selected is it necessary to select if the LCIM should be added to the element or not.

In the examples below is the element selected so the LCIM is added to the element when the Draw LCIM command is done. 

This example shows one way to add a pipe to a column - The pipe should be placed in the center of the column and go from the bottom to the top and therefore are Draw Vertical Linear Cast In Material used.

The placement of the LCIM is set based on Side, Depth and Distance from Side.

After the settings are set press "OK" to chose the placement of the LCIM in the column. The distance of a 100 mm from front is fixed and its now possible to click where the placement should be. In this example is it the center of the column that is used for the placement.

When the LCIM is added will IMPACT update the lift if necessary. After the lifts are updated is it possible to add more LCIMs with the same settings.

To finish the command use "Exit" or "Esc". When the command is finish will IMPACT ask if the newly drawn CIMs should be copied to other elements. This allow the user to copy LCIMs between elements.

This example shows one way to add a pipe to a Beam - The pipe should be placed in the center of the beam and go from the left to right and therefore are Draw Horizontal Linear Cast In Material used.

The placement of the LCIM is set based on Side, Depth and Distance from Side.

After the settings are set press "OK" to chose the placement of the LCIM in the beam. The "depth" is fixed to the center and its now possible to click where the pipe should start and end In this example is it the left edge that is the start point and the right edge that is the end point.
