Create a pour break

Create a pour break

You can add pour breaks to pour objects or concrete parts whose 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

is Cast in place.

You can create pour breaks by picking one, two, or more points in the model.

When you create a pour breakbuilding object used to split a pour object into smaller pour objects

that traverses more than two points, the pour break will be limited to the pour objectbuilding object that is formed of one or more cast-in-place concrete parts, or a part of a cast-in-place concrete part

The cast-in-place concrete parts are merged into one pour object if they have the same material grade and pour phase, and if they touch each other. Pour objects are visible in pour view.

it splits and perpendicular to the current work planeplane that the user has chosen in a model and that is currently active for working on in a model view

Newly created, copied, or moved model objects comply with the work plane. For example, shifting the work plane to follow a sloped plane makes it easier to model sloped structures.

. If you need to create an inclined or horizontal pour break using multiple points, shift the work plane first.

Tip:

Use theSnap to nearest points (points on line) snap switch to start or end pour breaks on part or pour object edges.

Use theSnap to any position snap switch to pick intermediate points for pour breaks.

To create a pour break, do any of the following:

To Do this

Create a pour break, perpendicular to a part face, using one point

  1. On the Concrete tab, click Pour break > Single point .
  2. Pick the location for the pour break.

Create a pour break that splits all cast-in-place concrete parts and pour objects located between two points

  1. On the Concrete tab, click Pour break > Two points .
  2. Pick two points to define the location of the pour break.

Create a pour break using multiple points

  1. If needed, shift the work plane.
  2. On the Concrete tab, click Pour break > Multiple points .
  3. Pick the points you want the pour break to go through.

Create a pour break defined by the opposite corners of a rectangle

  1. If needed, shift the work plane.
  2. On the Concrete tab, click Pour break > Multiple points .
  3. Hover over, and then clickon the toolbar that appears.
  4. Pick two opposite corner points of the pour break.

Create a pour break defined by the center and one corner of a rectangle

  1. If needed, shift the work plane.
  2. On the Concrete tab, click Pour break > Multiple points .
  3. Hover over, and then clickon the toolbar that appears.
  4. Pick the center point of the pour break.
  5. Pick one corner point of the pour break.

Create a pour break defined by three corners of a rectangle

  1. If needed, shift the work plane.
  2. On the Concrete tab, click Pour break > Multiple points .
  3. Hover over, and then clickon the toolbar that appears.
  4. Pick three corner points of the pour break.

Create a pour break defined by one side midpoint and two corners of a rectangle

  1. If needed, shift the work plane.
  2. On the Concrete tab, click Pour break > Multiple points .
  3. Hover over, and then clickon the toolbar that appears.
  4. Pick one side midpoint of the pour break.
  5. Pick two corner points of the pour break.

If the pour break you are creating does not split a pour object or cast-in-place part completely into two, Tekla Structures does not add the pour break to the model. You may need to use another Pour break command to create a valid pour break, for example Multiple points instead of Single point.
