Create a drawing view for a reinforcement mesh (RebarMeshViewCreator)

You can create drawing views each containing one reinforcement meshreinforcement that represents a mesh of steel bars in two perpendicular directions

In Tekla Structures, the reinforcement mesh bars in one direction are called main bars and reinforcement mesh bars perpendicular to them are called crossing bars.

using the RebarMeshViewCreator macrosaved series of actions that includes instructions for a program

Macros are located in the applications and components catalog. They are recorded or created manually and stored as .cs file in a folder defined with the advanced option XS_MACRO_DIRECTORY.

Macros can, for example, be used for creating drawings or reports.

Macros are sometimes used to run an application.

view contains the overall mesh length and width dimensions, and dimension lines for wire spacing in horizontal and vertical directions. Also the wire sizes are displayed. You can create mesh views in general arrangement and cast unit drawings.

  1. Open a drawing containing meshes.
  2. Select the meshes.

    If you want to create views for all meshes in the drawing, you do not need to select separately.

  3. Click the Applications & components button in the side pane to open the Applications & components cataloguser interface for displaying or modifying information in categorized lists

    For example, profile catalog and shape catalog are catalogs.

    .

  4. Click the arrow next to Applications to open the applications list.
  5. Double-click RebarMeshViewCreator.

  6. You have the following options for creating mesh views:
    • If you want to create a mesh view for each separate mesh in the current drawing, select Create mesh view for all meshes in the drawing.

    • If you want to create a view for the selected meshes only, select Create view for selected meshes. Here you must select the meshes before running the macro.

    • If you have already created the mesh views and just want to add dimension lines and diameters in the views, select Create annotations for selected meshes. Here you must select the meshes before running the macro.

  7. Select the view, dimension, text, line, and unbent wire line property files that you want to use in the new the mesh view.
  8. Select the wire annotation type in Text content type.

    The choices areand.

  9. Click Create.

    Tekla Structures creates or updates the views based on your selections and the property files.

Example

Below is an example of a mesh view.

The drawing below contains a 3D viewview that displays objects three-dimensionally

3D view is one of the default views.

of a wallplate that represents a structure such as a wall or roof panel

In Tekla Structures, a panel is created by picking two or more points.

In cast-in-place concrete the term wall refers to a concept similar to panel.

with two bent meshes, and a separate unbent mesh view of both of the meshes.

is there any way to update the text after had some modification in 3d and numbering?

Hello,
I am afraid there is not. You will need to create the views again.
