Last modified by superadmin on 2021/08/30 15:51

There are different ways to place lifts in sandwich walls. In this update, it will be possible to choose between 3 different settings for the lift placement in IMPACT for Revit. 

  1. Lift placed at center of gravity of the element
  2. Lift placed at center of gravity of inner panel, at inner panel elevation
  3. Lift placed at center of gravity the element, at inner panel elevation

The setting is driven by a variable in Standard Admin.

When value 2 is used, there will be a panel thickening added for all lifts. The insulation above the lift will also be removed.

The size of the panel thickening is controled in the lift definition in IMPACT for Revit.

The size of the removed insulation is controled by the size of the panel thickening, distance between top of panel thickening and top of element, and a variable in Standard Admin. The variable controls the width in mm.
