When good Things get even better
Plans for design and reinforcement quickly drawn
With the STRAKON version 2010 the Cologne-based software provider DICAD brings a drawing and planning tool to the market that initiates a new century and justifiably so. The previous system was extensively revised and extended. Now, STRAKON offers even more innovations that support the design engineer in doing his job.One of these innovations is the so-called quick box. It allows quick access to symbols, details, add-on programs, and hatchings. The user can choose the required function with the pre-defined characteristics by double-clicking and can use this immediately in the plan. For this purpose, for example, frequently used texts, line types and dimensioning styles are stored in a directory structure of the quick box and are thus available at any time. The advantage for the user is the fact that it is no longer necessary to assign characteristics to the single planning elements, which is quite time-consuming.
Always keep an overview
Also new is the reinforcement placing control with which the new version of STRAKON makes work much easier for the planner. Everybody, who ever has drawn a larger reinforcement plan knows this: one draws a placing area and does without the illustration of every single reinforcing element. No sooner the plan is ready when the overview got lost and one does no longer know whether really all areas have been furnished with steel bars. In this case, the reinforcement placing control of STRAKON 2010 is helpful. Just one click and the program shows all rebars planned. Furthermore, there is the possibility to choose an illustration according to the placing direction as well as the counting factor and/or the rebar diameter. In doing so, possible error sources are avoided right from the beginning and the work of the planner is easier and more reliable.Do you have any questions? Please contact us right here.
