Wall Joints

This function is used to make any wall joint definition for joining walls by using predefined endcaps, Cast-in Material and Linear Cast-in Material. It is possible to join Solid Walls, Sandwich Walls and Insulated Walls together.

Create a Wall Joint

To create Wall Joint definition following steps are needed:

1. Select "Joints" function from IMPACT Walls dropdown menu;


Figure 2. Joints function location.

2. In the definitions window select "New";

3. Specify the desired name and description for Joint definition;

4. In the geometry section, you need to select the desired endcaps to form a joint geometry. To offset the distance of wall joint, X, Y coordinates and Rotation function can be used.

5. In Cast-in Material/Linear Cast-in Material section you can add desired Cast-in Material in your joint. To add a new entry of CIM, right-click on an empty space and select "Add new row" and select desired CIM and their placement on your joint.

There are two available setups:

  1. Specifying a distance from the top and bottom edge and how many CIM's do we want in the element, which will align accordingly.
  2. Specifying a distance from the top and bottom edge and distance in between CIM's, IMPACT will add as many CIMs as possible according to your settings.

T - Joint

It is now possible to create Wall T - Joints by using Continuous Wall function, which will help to identify continuous wall geometry to make a T - joint. By selecting Vertical or Horizontal option it will adjust the preview and allowance of adding the endcap accordingly.
