ORION 18: HOW TO CREATE REINFORCEMENT DETAIL DRAWINGS


Now, we will learn how to print structural detail drawings in Orion 18. This is the first tutorial in our Post-Analysis part of this tutorial series.
Drawings in Orion 18 are created as AutoCAD drawings, therefore, to print drawings, you have to ensure that AutoCAD is installed in the system being used.

In this tutorial, we will learn how to print detailing drawings of the structural members (Columns, beams and walls). For this tutorial, we will print column drawings, though the same procedure is also applicable to beams and slabs.

Step 1


Left click, then right click on ‘Column’ in the structure tree view on the left side of the screen. Click on ‘Column Section Design

Step 2


In the ’Column Reinforcement Design’ dialog box that appears, Click on the ‘Detail Drawing’ tab in the top row of the dialog box. In this view, Click ‘Create Sheets’. A ‘SHEET LAYOUT MODULE’ appears. In this module, set the sheet size to the one you want. Do this by clicking on ‘Sheet: A2 (59.4 x 42.0)’ and change it to the print sheet selected at the beginning (A2 (59.4 X 42.0)). Click ‘OK‘ in the ‘SHEET SIZES’ dialog box.

Step 3

To place the drawings in sheets, Click on the name of the column (in this case ‘1C1’), and without releasing the mouse, drag it into the drawing area. The outline of the column appears in the sheet as shown below. Click ‘Save’, then ‘Close’ at the bottom left of the ‘SHEET LAYOUT MODULE’ dialog box.


Step 4


In the ‘Column Reinforcement Design’ dialog box, click ‘Detail Drawings’. Select the sheet number, then click ‘OK’. The software opens the AutoCAD software with the detailing drawing inside.

Step 5

To draw all the detailing drawings for all the columns automatically, Click on ‘Automatic Details (All Columns)’ among the options at the top of the ‘Column Reinforcement Design’ dialog box. In the ‘Detailing Drawing Arrangement’ dialog box that appears, tick the box for ‘Storey - 1’ and ‘Display Every Sheet Prepared’. The AutoCAD software automatically prints out all the detail drawings.
