It is recommended to perform after **Surface reinforcement design**, because surface reinforcement influences punching calculations.
813 +
814 +The punching regions are automatically defined by the program at the plate – coumn intersections and you can define them manually.
815 +
816 +* [[image:1585578366463-730.png]] Punching design/check can be done at any point where a punching region is exists. Design and check can be done by these punching zones or by their **design groups**.

These standard values have to de added manually by selected punching zones or by their groups.
