IMPACT Design Advantages

High-quality precast concrete design

IMPACT Design delivers immediate results and high-quality designs working with AutoCAD, Revit, and other software such as Tekla. IMPACT Design offers you the chance to create a Building Information Model using 3D elements for maximizing the accuracy of your floor plans, shop drawings, assembly drawings, and reports.

Complete control over your projects

From the initial idea of your project to the design, production, transportation, and erection of the elements, IMPACT provides you complete control, a better understanding of the actual erection progress, and easy tracking of each component, which includes rough estimations of delivery and cast dates.

Maximize your business model accuracy

IMPACT Design component library utilizes many specific tools for maximizing model accuracy and is expandable to model any precast element in 3D. Any changes made to the model or various elements are saved to the database and immediately available to every project member, avoiding design conflicts and outdated files.

The features of IMPACT Design

Characteristics:

IMPACT Wall
Wall

The IMPACT Wall module supports your design and detail precast walls in 3D, including automatic lift and bracing generation and automatic center of gravity computation. It produces automatic shop drawings, reports, and, in combination with the IMPACT Reinforcement module, automatic reinforcement templates.

The features of IMPACT Wall include but are not limited to electrical keys, cast-in materials, corbels, openings, edge details, recesses, automatic connections, lintels, wall ties, thickenings, and advanced geometry.

IMPACT Wall
IMPACT Sandwich Wall
Sandwich Wall

The IMPACT Sandwich Wall module helps you immediately update your drawings and models in a 3D model, plan, elevation, or shop drawing. Your whole sandwich wall design project is synchronized automatically with all your graphics.

IMPACT Sandwich Wall features the same options as IMPACT Wall, all working on multiple layers of the Sandwich panel.

IMPACT Hollowcore Slab
Hollowcore Slab

The IMPACT Hollowcore Slab module supports your design and detail hollowcore slabs in 3D, including automatic cast in lifers positioning with automatic core fillings. It creates automatic shop drawings and export files for plotters, automatic sawing machinery, and reports.

Cast-in materials, recesses, or automatic recesses, positioning of prestressed wires or stands, edge details, core fillings, cut zones, or hanger details are just a few of the IMPACT Hollowcore Slab features.

Slab

The IMPACT Slab module offers you the chance to design and detail slabs in 3D, including automatic positioning of the cast in lifers. It produces automatic shop drawings, export files for plotters and reports. With IMPACT Slab, you can now draw slabs with any curved shape profile, which is individually helpful for designing balconies. Moreover, together with the Pre-Stress connection module, IMPACT Slab performs prestress load checks on your floor layouts.

With many features, IMPACT Slab can be purchased standalone or as part of the entire IMPACT Design suite.

IMPACT Slab
IMPACT Column & Beam
Column&Beam

The IMPACT Column & Beam module supports your design and detail precast columns & beams in 3D and includes automatic cast placement in lifters. Any changes you make in the 3D design, plan, elevation, or shop drawing are directly refreshed on all corresponding drawings and models. Your entire column and beam design projects are automatically synchronized with each drawing.

Among the IMPACT Column & Beam features, you can find cast-in materials, corbels on multiple sides, recesses, reinforcement of templates, and many more.

IMPACT Reinforcement
IMPACT Reinforcement

IMPACT Reinforcement offers you the tools you need for generating intelligent steel reinforcement models, drawings, and schedules. IMPACT Reinforcement contains information to define rebar, including bar mark, shape code, leg lengths, end hooks, and material. It provides an intuitive way of describing complex reinforcement for both in-situ (RC) and precast concrete structures, having a plug-in for AutoCAD and BricsCAD.

IMPACT Reinforcement features:

  • Automatic Schedules
  • Export Data
  • Customizable
  • Quick drafting of rebar
  • Automatic saving of changes
