Boundary Setup 4D

Ingenius new tool first developed by Kristian Goodsell. There has never been an easier way to set-out your site. With its inbuilt help pointers, this tool makes site set-outs so easy, a salesman could do it.!! 🙂

Boundary Setup 4D

Cone of Vision

The cone of vision is a symbol that allows a windows cone of vision to be displayed on floor plan. There are hotspots to stretch out the cone of vision and to move the text around. As the cone of vision increases the text showing the length of the cone of vision also updates. This is a very useful part and quite popular!

Cut Off Drain 4D

This is a simple part to stretch infront of a driveway that allows you to put the cut off drain between the driveway and garage. 

Open Space Fill Object 4D

This object allows the user to create open space calculations, going by the relevant R codes and will link back into the site tool object. It will also tell you if you have enough open space. 

Setback Averaging

To calculate setback averaging. (Using a 6m and 12m Averaging)

  1. Drawing in your 6m and 12m setback lines from the front boundary
  2. Create the front setback area, using the ‘4D IN-FRONT SETBACK’ fill
  3. Create the behind setback area, using the ‘4D BEHIND SETBACK’ fill
  4. Select all your fills and run the ‘4D DataExp’ component list from the project map
  5. Go to the object tool and select the ‘Set-Back averaging 4D’ tool
  6. Click ‘Import Data’ and modify the text as required.

If the import did not work, it maybe a windows permission error. See the help files.

Site Label

Is a very basic object that can be used to show the finished floor level and sand pad level in site plan. The idea is that it will stop calculation errors when calculating the sand pad level, as you just need to put in the FFL and then it works out the slap thickness, and therefore the sand pad level/thickness. 

Site plan Set Out Object

This object can do site coverage, slab set out plan and automatically put in the shape of a house – the dimension that house to the boundaries. (Look on website to find more?) 

Stepped Footing 4D

Object to aid with the creation of stepped footings in plan, elevation and 3d if required. Simply place the maker at one end. Then from one end of the elevation create more steps by moving the hotspots, creating additional steps to the footing, and automatically creating the stepped footing marker in the floor plan at the step point as well.

Tree Shapes

Create a basic shape for 3D sketch diagrams for landscaping, without finding the high polygons that you would find in a full tree.
