I would like to save the foundations with certain dimensions as a template in the database. Is it possible? The button for this is disabled in the '1.2 Geometry' dialog box.

Answer

When dimensioning a foundation plate, the option to save foundation dimensions is inactive. Even if the results from the previous calculation are already saved and available. See Figure 01.

After the first calculation in the 'Rate' mode, however, you can import the dimensions of the foundation plate as 'start values' for a new calculation by using the 'Import Dimensions of Foundation Plate from Calculation' button. See Figure 02.

Thus, the results from the first calculation are deleted and the program runs the calculation in the 'Define dimensions' mode. Now, this mode also provides you the option to save the foundation dimensions in the database of foundation templates. See Figure 03.
