Irregular Dispatch Reinforcing - Options tab
Used to control reinforcement display and other options.
|Display Mode||Sets the mode how rebar displays on your drawing:|
|Extend to Cover||When checked, the length of rebar extends to the edge of concrete minus the cover distance.|
|Create Vary Sets||
When checked, enables creating vary codes. Vary Sets are detected (default is ON).
|Embed All Bars|| When checked, embeds all size bars in rebar. All
bars are embedded in the concrete. This comes into play when Number of Bars
Each Length is greater than 1.
For instance, if is OFF, and Number Bars Each Length is 2, then the bar closer to the trapezoid edge of the concrete may stick out, or be closer to the edge than the Side Clearance, the bar farther from the trapezoid edge of the concrete is located at the Side Clearance (see examples below.) Default is ON.
|Group By Long Bars||When checked, the rebar groups longer bars. The bar is grouped starting at the long end of the Vary Set. This comes into play when Number of Bars Each Length is greater than 1, AND the total quantity of bars in the vary set are not evenly divisible by Number of Bars Each Length (see examples below.). Default is ON.|
|Minimum Number of Groups/Bars||Sets the minimum groups necessary for vary set. Requires a whole number as the input. Sets the minimum number of adjacent bars which vary in length at and even (or non-linear) rates to be considered a Vary Set (default is 3).|
|Number of Bars Each Group/Each Length||Sets the quantity of bars a group can have. Requires a whole number as the input. Rather than having all bars in a Vary Set be a different length, and thus need to be cut at different lengths, fabricators like to group 2 or more bars at each vary length for fewer cuts (see examples below). Default is 1.|
|Maximum Increment||Sets the incremental factor for bars –the maximum variance length from one bar to the next. If the bar lengths along the trapezoid edge vary in length by more than this value they are not considered a Vary Set (default is 1' or 300mm).|
|Maximum Differential||Sets the differential factor for bars –the maximum variance length from the first bar to the last bar. If the bar lengths from one end of the trapezoid edge to the other end vary in length by more than this value they are not considered a Vary Set (they can be broken down into multiple Vary Sets). Default is 30' or 10000mm.|
|Vary Code|| Determines how Bar Marks are assigned within Vary
Sets, and can be set independently for Straight (bar) Vary Sets and Bent (bar)
