Beam Volume missing?

Dear All,

I have the weird feeling that some options are not there anymore. In that case it is a Beam Volume. I wanted to check it in profile beam, but there is no option to choose from.
I even checked different language versions and help files and you can see the graphics, that there is volume in one (example: AC18) and in the newer one (example: AC24)

Please advise what can be done here.

Where are you trying to use it?

For labels and schedules you can just use the volumes in 'General Parameters'.

It seems these 'General' volumes are used for all (most) elements now except for column core and column veneer volumes.

Hi Barry,

 

what if I have complex profile modeled (i.E foundation) and I want to see different materials‘ volume being scheduled?

Hi Karol

Just use component schedule

In a component schedule you can use 'Component Volume'.

At the moment though I can't see how you can tell which Building Material it is for though.

I can only list all of the building materials.

Hi Barry

What can't you see?  As for me, everything is visible.

All good now.

You have to add the 'Name' from the Building Material list and not 'Building Materials' from the General list.

 

Thanks.
