The simplest grid is the structured grid (Figure 5 (a)). In such a grid, the grid lines of either family do not cross each other and cross the other one’s only once. Hence, all grid cells can be numbered consecutively, and each grid point has just 2, 4, and 6 neighbors in a 1-D, 2-D, and 3-D grid, respectively. USG is your resource for suspended drywall ceilings. A drywall ceiling grid offers an efficient, pre-engineered solution for installing ceilings. Among the advantages of our suspended drywall grids are their superior installation time. Additionally, our suspended gypsum ceiling options include products designed for smaller spaces. Kalwall translucent structural sandwich panels include a grid core composed of a series of interlocking I-beams that are either all aluminum or aluminum+FRP thermally broken I-beams. Standard structural grid cores include: shoji + reverse shoji. Popular optional and custom grids for facades only include: tuckerman, vertikal + ladder, plank + plank reverse, root + branch, and many others. Structural grids The Grid Line tool creates a snappable grid of reference lines that can be used for proper alignment of columns, walls, and other drawing elements. Structural grids consist of one or more grid sequences. Grid sequences, in turn, consist of multiple individual grid lines that use the same label system. 1200mm Structural Tees and 3600mm field grid sections are notched every 600mm on center for proper alignment and spacing of the connectors. Perimeter connector can be cut on site to be used in various.

There are two types of grids or grid lines in RAM Modeler: standard grids and construction grids. Standard grids are the primary reference points for both the engineer and the program in defining the structural model. These grid lines can usually be obtained from the architectural drawings. The engineer may also add grid lines anywhere necessary to assist in creating the model. Grid lines and grid labels will be included in an exported DXF File. Standard grids are always part of a grid system.

Construction grids are free form grids that are used solely for modeling purposes. They are not labeled, do not affect the labeling of columns and are not part of the standard grid systems.

Grid Systems are groups of related grids. There are two types of Grid Systems: Orthogonal and Radial. Orthogonal Grid Systems consist of X Grids and Y Grids; these grids are at 90 degrees to each other. Radial Grid Systems consist of Radial Grids and Circular Grids.

Grid Systems can be offset and rotated with respect to the global axes.

Grid intersections between grid lines (both standard and construction) become modeling nodes, or SnapTo points. These points are used by some modeling commands where the cursor 'snaps' from node to node. This simplifies the process of laying down elements graphically. Member locations and intersections, such as beam ends, also create SnapTo points.
