The slab formworks package has been developed for all types of slab forming: panels and props like the Topec® system or similar, primary and secondary beams like the Dokaflex® system or similar and the Ischbeck® or similar system. The software optimizes the equipment and creates under AutoCAD® an automatic layout. The software enable also to have a solution driven by the user or completely manuel where the user selects from the dialog box the composition of the beams to be used on a row.
The different parameters are specified by the user in the dialog box: beams lengths to be used in the project, direction and spacing of beams. The drawing is created instantly which enables the user to check different alternatives by varying the different parameters. The user can, of course, modify the automatic solution as the drawing obtained is an autocad regular one, any AutoCAD command can be used to erase, move …
Bills of quantities are then calculated automatically, giving the number of props, primary and secondary beams per phase.
Any new manufacturer can be implemented in the software by modifying the configuration file and adding the new beam blocks.
