You may occasionally need to delete or omit specific reinforcing bars. For example, when several reinforced areas intersect, causing reinforcing bars to overlap, or when you want to start bar distribution at a specific distance from the end of a part.

To delete reinforcing bars from a group, do one of the following:

To Do this

Delete bars using direct modification

  1. Ensure that the Direct modification switch is active.

  2. Select a reinforcing bar group.

  3. Click the Move, add, delete reinforcement button on the toolbar.

  4. Select the bars to be deleted and press Delete.

Delete bars using the Reinforcing Bar Properties dialog box

  1. Select a reinforcing bar group.

  2. Double-click the reinforcement to open the Reinforcing Bar Properties dialog box.

  3. On the Group tab, select an option from the Reinforcing bar(s) not to be created to the group list.

  4. Click Modify.

Examples when you have used the Reinforcing bar(s) not to be created to the group options:
