The Rebar Prefix allows user to apply prefix to rebar or rebar groupgroup of reinforcing bars that are side by side and have identical properties, except the possible variation in bar lengths
based on it’s diameter.
How to Locate
After installation, ‘Rebar Prefix’ plug-in will be available in the component catalogcatalog that contains all system components and custom components, and the macros and applications
The term component catalog is used in Tekla Structures until version 21.1.
Click the icon in the component cataloguser interface for displaying or modifying information in categorized lists
For example, profile catalog and shape catalog are catalogs.
Select the rebar in the model and click on selected option and click update to add diameter value as prefix of that rebar. Or you can use full model to assign it to all rebars in the model, all rebar will get their respective diameter as prefix.
This will enable diameter wise numberingprocess of assigning position numbers to parts, cast units, assemblies, or reinforcement
In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.
