To satisfy an industry requirement, it is required that columns (slabs) should join to beams or floors, and beams join to floors in some cases. This tool will analyze the desired models and update the join order effectively between columns vs. floors, or columns vs. beams, or beams vs. floors to guarantee the join order meets such restrictions.

The BIMC-Switch Join Order tool provides the following auto join features:
  • Join columns to floors
