The user can customize the contextual toolbar.

The term mini toolbar is used in Tekla Structures until version 21.1.

to view and modify the properties of the rebar set splitters. The file name extension of the properties file is .rst_sm.

Some of the following settings depend on the splitterrebar set modifier that can be used to split the reinforcing bars in a rebar set and to create reinforcement splices

direction. An arrowhead symbolclose to the midpoint of each splitter indicates the direction and the left and right sides of the splitter. The arrow points from the start towards the end of the splitter.

General

Option Description
Bars affected

Select how many bars can be modified in the same location:

  • 1/1 = all bars are modified in the same cross section.
  • 1/2 = every second bar is modified in the same cross section.
  • 1/3 = every third bar is modified in the same cross section.
  • 1/4 = every fourth bar is modified in the same cross section.
First affected bar

Define which is the first bar to be modified, starting from the first end of the modifier.

Enter a positive number, or use the arrow buttons to change the number.

Option Description
Split type Select Lapping or Cranking.
Split offset

Defines how far from the splitter the split is created.

Positive values move the split to the right side and negative values to the left side of the splitter.
