Properties Select or load the end condition type and type or select the corresponding properties for the type.
  • Type – Displays the currently selected end condition.
    Note: Some of the parameters are different for the selected end condition type. For example, the "User Type" will have settings both for start and end conditions.
  • Load – Loads the default standard values for the current end condition type.
  • Pin Dia (Pin Diameter) – Diameter of the pin used to bend the bar.
  • Angle – The bend angle in degrees.
  • Length – The leg length.
  • Depth – The offset dimension from the end of a Crank to the main section of the bar.
  • Tail/Leg – The tail/leg length. A tail/leg length is automatically calculated unless you manually enter a value using the Override Tail.
  • Override Tail – When checked, enables setting a custom tail leg length.
  • EC Reduction – When checked, applies the End Condition reduction.
  • Rotation – Sets an angle to rotate the end condition.
  • Rotate End Condition – Rotates all end conditions in 90° increments.

These properties associated with parts are taken when the model is processed, for example the Pin Diameters will also reflect in "Bar Bending Schedule".

Mechanical Device When checked, the rebar end will include a mechanical coupling device.
  • Manufacturer – Used to sets All or one of the mechanical device manufacturers from the drop-down list.
