Use this advanced option to define the contents of the reinforcement position numbers ( REBAR_POS ) of single bars in tapered bar groups within rebar sets. You can also change or remove the separator and affect how many numbers are used to represent the position numberidentifier that is assigned to all similar parts, assemblies, cast units, or reinforcement
Position number consists of a prefix, separator, and running number. The prefix is part of the position number, identifying a numbering series. The running number is part of the position number, and is the assigned number in the numbering series, based on the start number. The separator is an optional character, such as a slash, that separates the prefix and the running number.
In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.
In the US, the term piece mark or ship mark is used to refer to a position number.
. If you change the value, you need to renumber the model.
Use the following options or a combination of them:
|%PART_PREFIX%||The prefix of the position number of the part that contains the reinforcing bar.|
|%PART_START_NUMBER%||The start number of the position number of the part that contains the reinforcing bar.|
|%REBAR_PREFIX%||The prefix of the position number of the reinforcing bar.|
|%REBAR_SERIAL_NUMBER%||The position number without the prefix of the reinforcing bar.|
|%REBAR_POS%||This is no longer used. Use %REBAR_SERIAL_NUMBER% instead.|
|%REBAR_SIZE%||The size of the reinforcing bar with the possible size prefix.
For example, in the US environments the size prefix is #.
|%REBAR_SIZE_NUMBER%||The size of the reinforcing bar without the size prefix.|
|%CAST_UNIT_PREFIX%||The prefix of the position number of the cast unit that contains the reinforcing bar.|
|%CAST_UNIT_START_NUMBER%||The start number of the position number of the cast unit that contains the reinforcing bar.|
|%SUB_ID%||The running index number of the reinforcing bar in a tapered bar group within a rebar set.|
|%SUB_ID_WITH_LETTERS%||Same as above, but with letters.
Uses letters A–Z by default, but you can also define the valid letters with the advanced option XS_VALID_CHARS_FOR_REBAR_SUB_ID_WITH_LETTERS.
The default value is %REBAR_PREFIX%%REBAR_SERIAL_NUMBER%.%SUB_ID%.
This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options
There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).
The Prefix in the rebar set properties is set to R , the Start number is set to 1 , and the Size is set to #6.
If you set the advanced option to %REBAR_SIZE%%REBAR_PREFIX%%REBAR_SERIAL_NUMBER.3% , the result for the first reinforcing barreinforcement that represents a steel bar used to reinforce a concrete structure
The steel bars are usually ribbed and they are used to increase the tensile strength of concrete.
will be #6R001.
If you set the advanced option to %REBAR_SIZE_NUMBER%%REBAR_PREFIX%%REBAR_SERIAL_NUMBER.3% and number the model, the result for the first reinforcing bar is 6R001.
