Cast unit drawings

Cast unit drawings are dimensional, form work, or reinforcement drawings used in concrete design and construction. They show cast-in embeds, edge chamfers, and hard and soft insulation. Cast unit drawings that show cast-in-place concretecast unit type where the concrete is formed, poured, and cured in its final position

structures usually use large sheet sizes, for example, A1 or imperial standard size 24" x 36". Drawings that show precast structures usually use smaller sheet sizes, for example, A3 or imperial standard size 11" x 17".

You can only create cast unit drawings of concrete parts and cast-in embeds (steel parts or assemblies added to a cast unit). Cast unit drawings also show the bolts and welds in steel parts. The volume and weight information of the cast unit remains accurate even if there are cuts inside the cast unit.

Cast units have the cast unit typeproperty of a concrete part in a cast unit that defines if the structure type of the part is precast or cast in place

part property - they are set either Cast in place or Precast. It is important to use the correct cast unit type, because some features, for example, numberingprocess of assigning position numbers to parts, cast units, assemblies, or reinforcement

In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.

and continuous concrete are based partly on the cast unit type. In the Rebar Detailing configuration, you can create cast unit drawings of cast-in-place cast units only.
