TSAC-2735 Reinforcement

Previously, if you used a Rebar coupler or Rebar end anchor component with rebar sets and manually attached the rebar set bars to another part, the components remained attached to the original part. This has now been fixed. Now both the rebars set bars and the components are correctly attached to the other part.

TSAC-2605 Reinforcement

In Rebar shape manager, a new tolerance value, Curve tolerance, has been added to the Tolerances tab. This value is used for recognizing the arc in a rebar that has multiple sequential bendings.

If the deviation of the rebar leg from the arc is less than the tolerance, multiple bendings are combined to one (or two) bendings with the arc radius as the bending radius.

TSAC-2576 Reinforcement

Rebar shape managertool that is used for customizing the bending shapes of reinforcing bars

Rebar shape manager can be used for bending shapes only and not for any other reinforcing bar properties.

has been changed so that multiple sequential bendings which form an arc are combined into one or more bendings (90 degrees or less) with the arc radius. This makes it possible to define bending shapes containing a large radius bending no matter how many individual bendings appear in the original bar geometry.

This functionality is in use when you set the new XS_REBAR_COMBINE_BENDINGS_IN_EVALUATOR advanced option to TRUE. The advanced option can also be set in a suitable .ini file:
SET XS_REBAR_COMBINE_BENDINGS_IN_EVALUATOR=TRUE

When the advanced option is set to FALSE (which is the default value), the bendings appear as multiple bendings and the shape is recognized as before.

names are incremented correctly (for example, "A100 3", "A100 4", and so on).

TTSD-24549 Modeling

Models created with Tekla Structures versions older than 2017 could get corrupted if they were saved while runtime IDs were disabled. Saving models will now fail if runtime IDs are disabled, which will prevent models from being corrupted for that reason.
