Answer


Select the elements to define the solution.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

Ask to define a new solution.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

Choose views; like in a normal rebar view.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

The red dots are sketch points. The program creates sketch points on the objects geometry.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

Create a rectangular frame.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

A bar is defined by other bars (such as the straight bars in the corners of a rectangular frame) or by sketch points. The rectangular frame top definition points must be pinned by sketch points.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

We want a new point at the intersection of QA with LJ.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

Select the intersection.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

Define the first line.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

Q-A.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

Define the second line, L-J.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

Click OK. A point, U, is created at the intersection.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

Repeat for R-B with L-J.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

Add point bars in the frame corners.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

Distribute everything. The distribution must also be defined by sketch points.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

The sketch toolbar allows you to draw any sketch using:
- Translations
- Rotations
- Intersections
- Vectors
- Lines
- Planes
- Angles
- Distances Factors (ex. 1/2, 1/4)

Explore this toolbar:

Save your solution.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

Take a snapshot to show in the preview, when applying the solution.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

Add conditions for elements. Example only for walls thinner than 30cm.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

Define the solution interface: what reinforcement parameters should be decided when the solution is applied.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

Parameter values can be assigned to multiple variables.
Choose Add parameter… cover, then:
- Select Cover A and type = Cover
- Select Cover B and type = Cover
- Select Cover C and type = Cover
- Select Cover D and type = Cover

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

It means all the covers are defined by the same parameter.

Click finish and save your solution in a file.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

This file can be in a shared location on the network and used by your coleagues. To modify the solution later; or to create derived solutions, save also the dwg file.

How to refine RBS in Advance Concrete

When the file is re-opened it will be still in sketch-mode, as indicated by the red/orange pilot. Use close to exit sketch mode.
