Add core filling

The two slabs closest to the middle of the building got recesses that are weakening the slab end because the recess is very close to two of the cores. To add strength, we'll add some core fillings.

Go to IMPACT - Elements - Core Filling to start the command. 

Start with selecting the left slab. 

When you get the prompt to 'Pick corner points', select one point on the boundary of the slab, but outside the core that we are adding the core filling to. Note: it's important that the first point is in the border of the slab, and not inside or outside.

Depending on what points you clicked, you will get different amount of suggested cores to fill. In our case, we will only fill cores 3 and 6. Delete the other ones.

Change the length to 800mm.

End the command with 'OK'.

The core fillings are now added. Do the same for the slab on the right side.
