Delete bars from a reinforcing bar group

You may occasionally need to delete or exclude 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. On the contextual toolbar, click the Move, add, delete reinforcement button.

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

Delete bars using the Rebar group properties

  1. Select a reinforcing bar group.

  2. Double-click the reinforcement to open the Rebar group properties.

  3. In the Creation section, select an option from the Exclude list.

  4. Click Modify.

Examples when you have used the Exclude options:

Before excluding bars After excluding bars

Two reinforcing bar groups have been added to a concrete beam:

  • one bar group with flexible last space

  • one bar group with flexible first space

Two reinforcing bar groups without the excluded bars:

  • one bar group with the last bar excluded

  • one bar group with the first bar excluded
