3. Commands in the Calculations panel are used for automatic 3D rebar generation. The user can choose to calculate a single element, multiple elements, or the entire model.



The Calculations panel







Commands in the Calculations panel allow the user to work using several workflows as described below:






4. With the commands in the Results panel, the user can explore and adjust the calculated reinforcement of an element, verify stresses and effort solicitations using diagrams, create automatic drawings, create reports or rebar lists.
