Insert units

Module automates and facilitates the selection and insertion of units in the job. It combines two main functionalities - the insertion of non-standard units from the user library and loading modules, creating generated units- Cabinet, Doors, Kitchen tops and sinks and more. A necessary condition for the normal functioning of the module is non-standard units, included in the menu to be described in Units register and Archival units register with their names, sizes and unit of measurement. It is added visualization of units selected for putting, as well as an automatic control of capacity in premise at their placing. Modules for creation of generated units are loaded in the section Generating of a multielement unit. From here you can load other modules that perform basic functions in the program such as Copying and Unit correction, Change unit sizes, Unit rotation, Unit position, Delete unit from the job, Scale area and others.

Insert units

The choice of units  is similar to the method in the horizontal menu. Choose in the main menu the section you need. The content of the section loads into the field Submenu. Specify an item into the field Description of the units in a submenu  (use the mouse or arrows of the keyboard). The image of the selected item will display, and it sizes will load into the fields. If you want to see a preview of the unit, you have to save an icon with such a name in the folder  C:\acad_pic\bazi_ico. You can see how to do that in the section Creation of unit icon - step by step. If it is necessary, you can change the sizes of the unit, and then add it in the drawing. The sizes of unit received directly from Units register or  Archival sunit register and they must  answer a mode View front or, you can set it by specifying a location in the drawing. The position by Z (on height) can be determined using button Select a unit from the drawing to define the position of the added unit, which is located in front of the field. You need to specify the node on which you want to put the selected unit, and its height will be loaded into the window. This method of determining the position is suitable for determining the position in the project of vases, dishes and other components for interior decoration.

Defining the position of non-standard modules by measuring or specifying an insert point  in a drawing - Right-click in the fields of the Position section. Will be  loaded a panel with 3 possible operations:

  1. Defining of position in the job - Activated by right-clicking into the corresponding field. The options for defining are:
    • Measurement of distance in the job for each ax  - Takes the measured distances along the X , Y, or Z axis depending on the indentation that is determined. About the position on  length takes the distance between two points horizontally (on X), position on height- Z and on depth-the distance on Y.
    • Measurement of the common distance - Takes the measured distance between the two selected points and applies to the appropriate position.
  2. Takes the position of the selected unit - It is required to specify a unit in the job. Takes the position of the of this unit and applies to the selected one.

The angle value (degrees) for rotation (Rotation) can be positive (on left) or negative (on right). The  unit  turns about its base point. The button Add returns you in the project to define a position of the  unit in the drawing or (if you already have entered it), only to insert unit into the drawing.  If you want to use an object snap in the drawing, activate the OSNAP key in the AutoCad status bar.

Fixes on Z -  Adds unit in the project with the given value on Z (from a floor), irrespective of the specified point in the drawing. The option is active by default.

Properties-Automated control for capacity of units in the room (its  internal volume). Checks that all  sides of the unit would be in internal volume of the room. Uses the entered in the Units register and  Archival units register unit's sizes. The operation works correctly at units with the bottom left base point (in a view top). The angle of rotation has no significance. It sets personally for each job.

If there is an unit outside of perimeter,the operation returns it in the premise(room) area. You can switch off the automatic control in Parameters for control of capacity of units dialog form, (as well as to define an obligatory distance of units from walls. The distance can be set as common for all room  walls or for each wall personally. The made settings will be saved after an exit from the module and they become valid for all jobs.  The entered here distances don't reflect to the units position created with module Cabinet, generated without legs, baseboard and position from the floor level.

Add the template name to its preview - Points to template images to add their names. If you enable the option Shows only the names of the templates, the overview will be not displayed. Only template names will be visible when the module is loaded.

Stops the generating for editing - When option is active , when loading template ,there will start generating the module that creates it  (Cabinet, Kitchen sinks and worktops, Corner cabinets).When the option is off,  dialog  does not load and the template is generated directly in the job.

The generated units have their own parameters,specific for each type. They automatically create and support an element nomenclature for the purposes of price formation and calculation of the  materials quantity.  These generated units have their own parameters. Double pressing of the mouse left key on the chosen unit model in the list will load it for generating. Enter the unit parameters and its position in the project. At the end of the operation  returns the moduleyou in the main form Insert units to continue your work.

Loading of templates - In the right part of the form are shown the icons of the saved templates (if  there are any).  Press the right button on the image to zoom it. Close the zoomed image pressing the right button again. Left button on an icon load the module together with the set parameters of the chosen construction (template).
