Desi Borisova 27.1 26 There are different types of CIM defined in the IMPACT database. IMPACT CIM Type parameter is used to identify different types of Cast in Materials, available in the IMPACT database.
Desi Borisova 5.1 27
Desi Borisova 27.1 28 The user is allowed to choose a type from the list with CIM types below. If the type of the CIM can not be defined, the user is advised to choose value ´´M´´ for Manual type.

Desi Borisova 15.1 41 == IMPACT CIM Mark ==
Desi Borisova 11.1 42
Desi Borisova 27.1 43 This is a parameter that marks the CIM with a number in the IMPACT database. The same CIM number can be found in IMPACT Standard Admin and CIM definitions in IMPACT AutoCAD.
Desi Borisova 15.1 44
Desi Borisova 30.1 45 IMPACT CIM Mark is the parameter that a user must use to make a connection between Revit CIM family and AutoCAD CIM block. If the element is saved in IMPACT Revit and later on generated in an IMPACT AutoCAD drawing, a CIM with the same number will be generated on the AutoCAD drawing.

64 == IMPACT Schedule ==
65
Desi Borisova 27.1 66 IMPACT Schedule parameter is used for differentiating between automatically generated shedules on the shop drawing. For example if the parameter has a value ´´cim´´, the CIM will be included in the CIM schedule, that is generated automatically on the shop drawing.
Desi Borisova 17.2 67
Desi Borisova 27.1 68 The same parameter is also used with value´´opening´´ in recess families. The recesses are then included in automatically generated opening schedules on the IMPACT Revit shop drawing.

75 == Unique Mark Controller ==
76
Desi Borisova 27.1 77 This parameter is necessary for user, that would like to keep same element mark on elements with identical geometry, component and reinforcement. This setting is available in the project properties in Project manager.
Desi Borisova 19.2 78
Desi Borisova 30.1 79 Unique Mark Controller helps the IMPACT system to scan and identify elements with identical components, like for exampel CIM. Therefore, we advise the user to add Unique Mark Controller parameter to all newly-created CIM families. There is no need to fill in a value, as the value will be filled in automatically by the software, if needed.
