Ask to define a new solution.
Choose views; like in a normal rebar view.
The red dots are sketch points. The program creates sketch points on the objects geometry.
Create a rectangular frame.
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.
We want a new point at the intersection of QA with LJ.
Select the intersection.
Define the first line.
Define the second line, L-J.
Click OK. A point, U, is created at the intersection.
Repeat for R-B with L-J.
Add point bars in the frame corners.
Distribute everything. The distribution must also be defined by sketch points.
The sketch toolbar allows you to draw any sketch using:
Save your solution.
Take a snapshot to show in the preview, when applying the solution.
Add conditions for elements. Example only for walls thinner than 30cm.
Define the solution interface: what reinforcement parameters should be decided when the solution is applied.
Parameter values can be assigned to multiple variables.
It means all the covers are defined by the same parameter.
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.
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.
