Concrete foundation (1030): Parts tab

Use the Parts tab to control the profile properties of the foundation plate(1) part that represents a flat structure

(1) In some contexts, for example in analysis, the term plate object may be used to refer to plates.

(2) plate that represents a steel structure

(2) Plate is mainly used as a connection piece or as a floor plate.

, foundation piles, stirrups and injection tubes in Concrete foundation (1030).

Concrete massive, Piles

Define the profile properties of the concrete foundation plate and the foundation piles.

If you leave the pileslender column or pole that is put into the ground to carry loads or to provide support

Pile may be made of precast or cast-in-place concrete, or steel.

thickness value empty on the Parts tab, the pile thickness value defined on the Picture tab is used instead together with the Pile profile type prefix (e.g. D).



t , b , h

Part thickness, width and height.


Prefix and a start number for the part position number.


Material grade.


Name that is shown in drawings and reports.


Part class number.


Add a comment for the part.

Reinforcing bars



Type of reinforcing bars

Select the profile type for the reinforcing bars.

  • Default : the same as Reinforcing bar

  • Poly-profile : profile catalog

  • Reinforcing bar : reinforcing bar catalog

Reinforcement bars

Size of the reinforcing bars.


Radius of the reinforcing bar hook.

Reinf. bars belong to

Define to which part the reinforcing bars belong.

  • Default : the same as Columns

  • Concrete massive : reinforcing bars belong to the concrete foundation plate.

  • Column : reinforcing bars belong to the column.

  • Loose part : reinforcing bars are not connected to any part.

  • Neighbor : reinforcing bars belong to the neighbor part. Use the name or class to find the part.

Injection tubes and curve



Injection tubes


Size of the injection tubes.

Size of the injection hoses.

Article number

Article number for the injection hose and the injection tube.

The entered values are saved to the user-defined attribute of the part.


Define how the injection hoses are connected to the injection tubes.

  • Default : injection hoses are loose parts.

  • Part-add gain : injection hoses are added to the injection tubes.

  • Weld gain : injection hoses are welded to the injection tubes.

  • Cast unit column : injection hoses are added to the column.

  • Weld to column : injection hoses are welded to the column.



Pile profile type prefix (e.g. D)

Default parametric profile prefix for the piles.

This value works only if you have set the pile thickness on the Picture tab.

You can override this value by setting the pile thickness on the Parts tab.

Reinf. bar profile type prefix (e.g.D)

Default parametric profile prefix for the reinforcing bar profiles.
