1. EXAMPLE OF APPLICATION OF THE AUTOCAD STRUCTURAL DETAILING - FORMWORK DRAWINGS PROGRAM: PROJECT OF A BUILDING
Use AutoCAD Structural Detailing - Formwork Drawings for preparing a project of a building and the appropriate drawings (foundation plan, plans of stories, vertical sections through the building, formwork drawings of single structure elements). The drawing below shows a 3D view of a defined building.

To use this documentation, follow these basic usage rules: • • • • Any icon symbol - click the icon with the left mouse button. {x} - select the ‘x’ option from the dialog. text - enter the underlined text on the command line of the program, and press Enter. LMC and RMC - use the mouse buttons (Left Mouse Click and Right Mouse Click, respectively).

on the desktop (or click Start To start AutoCAD Structural Detailing - Formwork Drawings, click menu > AutoCAD Structural Detailing), and then select the Formwork Drawings module. The software will include options (such as an extended menu, an additional toolbar, tabs and the Object Inspector dialog) for making structure model and drawings.
