Wall Geometry

In the "Wall Geometry" frame, the blocks are generated based on the "Panels" using the "Generation of wall geometry" button. When installing the wall, the top, basic, and bottom blocks or the setbacks between them are selected.

After the generation, the frame contains a table with generated block rows, which we can further modify.

The blocks are listed from left to right on the line. For example, the notation "12 x S60 (FICT), 1 x S60 (HALF), 12 x S60" tells us that the row is made up of twelve fictive blocks (space 12 * length of standard S60 block), one half-block and twelve standard blocks. The fictive blocks and half-blocks are either created automatically from existing blocks, or the block possibilities in the catalog are used. Each user block can be specified as Full, Half, Fictive, Half fictive.

To change one block, it is useful to use the "Change block" function - after pressing this button in 2D mode and clicking on the block you want to change, the program will open the dialog window for changing the block. To exit the mode, press the right mouse button

Very important in the program is the construction view mode (2D/3D), which is switched on the left control bar.

The 2D image represents "unwrapped" 3D shape. It allows you to enter various annotations (e.g. description of the structure, dimensions, description of the blocks) - but it is significantly harder to imagine the wall.

The 3D image is very clear, but you cannot create descriptions or replace individual blocks.
