Module 7 Template

Image of My Model



Because my design featured three separate structures, all of which had quite twisting forms, most of the beam system work had to be designed level by level. The cantilevers posed quite a challenge in creating a column structure that was sturdy yet was sticking out of the form. I was able to create a column and beam system more or less based on a grid. I placed structural footings at the bottoms of the columns and structural walls (around shafts). All floors are structural, and the floors upon the grade feature foundation slabs.

  6. Create a new View that merges a 3D view from both your architectural and structural models.
  7. Open the new view, and use the ACC Model Coordination environment to navigate to an interesting camera viewpoint. Then, create an Issue to share this viewpoint.
    1. Click the Issues button in the left navigation bar to display the saved issues.
    2. Click the Create Issue button to create a new one.
    3. Click a location in the model viewer to place a push pin.
    4. Enter info for this issue:
      • Change the Type to Design
      • Enter a Title
      • Assign the issue to our CA
    5. Click the Create button to save your issue and send it to the assignee.
  8. Repeat these steps to create three issues sharing interesting viewpoints within your merged models.
