part

piece /US/

building object that is a basic element of a model (1) and that can be modeled and detailed further

The main concrete parts are: column, beam, polybeam, spiral beam, panel, slab, lofted slab, pad footing, strip footing, and item.

The main steel parts are: column, beam, polybeampart of a certain shape that is created as a continuous chain of beams passing through points that the user picks

The segments of the polybeam are straight, but segment intersections can be curved. For example, a beam that follows a zigzag line is a polybeam.

, curved beam, twin profile, orthogonal beam, spiral beambeam that follows the form of a helix and is defined by a start point, center point and the rotation axis

Spiral beams can be concrete spiral beams or steel spiral beams. They can be used to create spiral staircases, complex architectural structures, and concrete parking ramps, for example.

Spiral beam can rise from the work plane or be flat. If the spiral beam rises, the total rise is defined between the start and the end point.

, contour plate, bent plate (1), lofted plate, and item.
