LSGen: A Tool To Draw Beam Longitudinal Sections
- DETAILING IN A SNAP
A versatile tool for drawing elevations of RCC beams from framing drawing.
LSGen is a tool that helps you generate perfect working drawings as per your
office style. It automatically reads a typical floor plan including the dimensions,
scale and positions and draws L/S and C/S of beams in mere seconds. Once the floor
plan is read LSGen offers a plethora of options for incorporating steel, beam depths,
segment depths, top depressions, section locations, etc.
LSGen offers more than 200
options to customize the working drawing according to your office style. Our idea
is to cater to every office individually and therefore we have provided all the
options as customizable options so that each office could still follow their own
working drawing styles.
We believe that LSGen should adapt to your office styles rather than your office
adapting to the working drawing generated by LSGen.
Also to be noted is that the learning curve required for this software is almost
nil as this software is compatible with AutoCAD and ZWCAD. And therefore if you
know how to operate these software then you already know how to operate LSGen. The main two simple commands to generate
working drawings using LSGen are as follows:
Command 1: LSGen:
Reads the framing drawing and compiles it.
Command 2: DrawLS:
Generates the beam elevations from the compiled information.
A typical floor plan having around 80 continuous beams. LSGen would approximately
around 50 seconds to read and draw Longitudinal and Cross Sections for all
the beams, of course with a proper scale, exact dimensions and perfect placements
of all the structural entities like columns, beams, secondary beams, brackets, shear
walls, sunk slab and so on.
Further, LSGen offers two
different interfaces for specifying steel. One option to include steel is through an excel
format in which you could type in all the reinforcements and then attach/include
this file in LSGen. Also, LSGen prepares a list of beams from the floor plan; these
beams can be clicked to enter the steel details in windows displayed.
Difficult to believe that LSGen produces beam elevations
fast - real fast?
