Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video The mesh, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details.
- So it's time to put the mesh in.…The mesh is made by using a series of lines which are…crisscrossed at 90 degrees to each other.…The important features really are the spaces,…now you have to give the bottom piece of mesh and the…top piece of mesh sufficient cover as it's referred to,…to make sure it doesn't get oxidized and blow and then bits…of concrete can pop off and then all of a sudden you get…some serious problems with your slab especially…if you have to dig it back out.…
Other things are important obviously the Perimeter…Insulation needs to go in before the concrete goes in,…and these spaces have a decent surface area at the bottom,…so it doesn't puncture the membrane when you…start pouring the concrete.…The sequencing would be the bottom one goes in…on top of the spaces, and then concrete is poured,…and then the top bit goes in.…Then you finish off with the remainder of the concrete.…So this is going to be 40 mill up,…these are just sort of indicative of spaces as well,…all is part of this sequencing series of joints.…
