Element Group in the Shop Drawing

Element Group value can be previewed in the IMPACT shop drawing.  

Element Group value is either read from the IMPACT Group parameter in the element family (Beams, Columns & Hollow cores) or from the element definition (Walls, Slabs & Form slabs). See more under IMPACT Group parameter in IMPACT Element parameters article. 

Here is how to add the Element Group parameter in the shop drawing title block in three steps: 

1. Open the title block family in the shop drawing. Create a label called Element Group and press on Edit.

2. Add a shared parameter, called Element Group from the list with shared parameters and press on Apply.
