Element Product in the Shop Drawing

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

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

Here is how to add the Element Product 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 Product and press on Edit.

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

3. If the Element Product parameter is not available, you can load it from the list, as shown on the picture below.

Next time a shop drawing is generated, the Element Product will be displayed in the drawing head. See the example below.
