ORION 18: HOW TO PRINT STRUCTURAL DESIGN REPORTS

Structural report view in CSC Orion 18

This is our second tutorial in the Post-Analysis part of our tutorial series.
In this tutorial, we will go through the simple steps to learn how to print out structural design reports for columns, walls and beams.
To see how you can print a structural analysis report, you can check our post on it here.

Step 1

In the Members toolbar at the top of the screen, Click ‘Run’, then ‘Column Section Design’. A ‘Column Reinforcement Design – Project: LearningOrion’ dialog box appears. This creates the report for walls as well.
NB: Orion considers column and walls together in everything (analysis, design, reports, etc)

Step 2

In the dialog box that appears, Click ‘Design’ near the top of the screen, then click on ‘Design Report’.

Step 3

In the ‘Column Reinforcement Design’ dialog box that appears, Tick the boxes for ‘Print Loadings and Interaction Diagrams’ and ‘Display All Combinations in the Interaction Diagram’. Change the ‘Font’ to ‘MS Sans Serif’ and the ‘Text Size’ to 12. Click ‘OK’. You can also use any other font or text size you prefer. A ‘Report Print Preview’ appears. Click ‘PDF’ to create a copy of the report in PDF.
