D. Coping a reinforcing cage design for re-use in another column group

Note: If the member has a reinforcement cage already defined, then the program checks the reinforcement for compliance.  Otherwise the program will select a reinforcement cage from the bars and specifications of the Design Brief to minimize the area of main reinforcement bars.
  1. Select a column member included in the previously designed column group.
  2. Select Edit > Copy. Reinforcement cage details are copied to the clipboard.
  3. Select columns to which you want to assign the reinforcing details.
    Note: Target columns must be of the same dimensions as the source column.
  4. Select Edit > Paste. The details are copied to the target columns and can then be checked for compliance.
