Merged reinforcement marks
Tekla Structures can automatically merge similar reinforcement marks of bars. Merged reinforcement marks may include several blocks, and additional information. Blocks combine similar single marks.
To have Tekla Structures automatically merge reinforcement marks in drawings, the reinforcement must be attached to a concrete part or cast unit in the model.
Tekla Structures automatically merges marks for visible reinforcing bars in drawings if:
The bars belong to the same concrete part or cast unit.
The direction of the bars is the same.
The bar marks are identical.
The bars are close to each other.
A straight line can be drawn through all the bars.
You can also define the distance within which to automatically merge marks for visible reinforcing bars using the following advanced optionssettings used to customize Tekla Structures for specific companies, standards, users, or user groups
In Tekla Structures, advanced options are settings that are used, for example, in a specific project or geographical area, or by a specific company.
In Tekla Structures, advanced options usually begin with the initials XS and are followed by the name of the function, for example XS_BACKGROUND_COLOR.
