4D Concrete Model Template - India Environment

General Instructions: 
1. This model templatemodel which is used as a basis for creating new models

The user can save a model including all its elements, such as object properties, certain settings, parts, and components, in a model template.

contains concrete & precast elements preset for users to learn & practice the settings listed in the article India Environment Concrete Role Help
2. Also it contains members with attributes set to practice & learn 4D project status visualizationtool that is used in the modeling mode for visualizing the status of model objects in a specific time frame

The project status visualization tool can be used, for example, to show model objects related to different phases of a project in different colors. A typical example of using the project status visualization tool is creating an erection schedule.

without having to create a new model.


1. Model objects & data

(For practicing/ learning Concrete related settings in India Environment as mentioned in General Instructions, point number 1)

1.1 Precast Members and Connections: 

Location:  Gridmodeling aid that represents a three-dimensional complex of intersecting grid planes or intersecting grid planes and curved grid surfaces

The grid is defined by coordinates in 3D space. It is shown two-dimensionally on the view plane by dash-and-dot lines. A grid can be rectangular or radial.

It is possible to have more than one grid in a model. For example, a large-scale grid for the entire structure, and smaller grids for some detailed sections.

It is also possible to show grids and grid line labels in drawings, and to modify how they are shown in the drawings.

X Axis: B to C  |  Grid Y axis:  2 to 3  |  Grid Z axis: -2300 to +100 

1.2 Cast in Place Members:

Apart from above mentioned location, all other members are Cast In place members.


1.3 Surfaces/ Surface Treatments: 

1.3.1 Surface Treatments: Applied to Elevator pit walls that could be used in creating reports and templates, custom inquiry, etc.  

1.3.2 Surfaces: Applied to Slabs @ Level 6100mm - 9100mm

1.4 Pour Objects / Units: 

All Cast In Place members are included Pour by default to demonstrate Pour functionalities and features.

To enable the Pour viewview that displays cast-in-place concrete parts merged into pour objects

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

, we have to set the Advance option XS_​ENABLE_​POUR_​MANAGEMENT to TRUE.

Please check the links for more information on the Pour view options: a) Pour View  b) Manage Pours

Please use "Assembly" selection to select Pour Unitentity that combines together a pour object and the other building objects that need to be in place before cast-in-place concrete can be poured

The needed building objects can be reinforcement and embeds, for example.

instead of Pour objectbuilding object that is formed of one or more cast-in-place concrete parts, or parts of cast-in-place concrete parts

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.

1.5 Reinforcement Details

Rebar, couplers, connections and embeds are modeled in lower level that can be used in reports, templates, drawings, etc. with available settings in India Environment. 


2. 4D Model data

Pour numbers, Erection dates are defined already for each member in the model. You can view them using the Organizertool that is used for categorizing and managing model information, object properties and object property queries, and model object classification

Organizer consists of two tools, object browser and categories.

as shown in the sketch below. This will help you to understand how to define parameters in project status visualization tool, learn and practice 4D visualization in India Environment.

Pour Numbers are defined for review
