Parametric Embedment Plate with Parametric Studs

Hello there! Here is a quick video clip of the parametric embedment plate that I have created for the current project I am working on.

https://youtu.be/lZu__hmV7Aw

And here is the detail. No 2D detail lines being added and drawn manually to create this section. Everything comes from 3D elements with the exemption of the break lines and text annotations.

Here is the one that connects to the beam.

 

Similarly, even the reinforcements from the section were not drawn using 2D detail lines.

I’m a bit busy at the moment, so if I find a time, I’ll create a tutorial on how I made this parametric embedment plate with parametric studs.

Have a good day!

Cheers,

Allan Cantos

My CITB (Construction Industry Training Board) Test Result

How are you doing guys? I hope you had a great weekend.

Last Saturday, I sat on Health and Safety exam for Managers and Professional and after 2 weeks of reading and making my time productive while traveling on the tube by answering the questions on the paid CITB (Construction Industry Training Board) apps that I’ve downloaded on my iPhone, which costs me £5.99, the hard work paid off! I passed the exam!

Some questions were from CDM Regulations 2015, about 5 questions, and here is the link for the webinar that I watched to help me to better understand my role and that of other duty holders.

Here is a bit of summary about the roles of each duty holders:

Even if you don’t normally go to the site, it is somehow a good way to demonstrate that you have basic knowledge and understanding of Health and Safety by passing this test.

Good luck when it is your time to sit for the exam.

Have a nice day.
