Rebar pullout picture and marking

 

 

Use for:

Visualization of rebars by using bending shapes. Bending shapes can be positioned both inside and outside the concrete shape. Bending shapes are also provided with marks including information about the rebar.

 
Examples:

 

Examples

 

Selection order:

 

  1. Select the rebar (group) of which a bending shape mark must be created.
  2. Pick a point for the position of the bending shape mark.

Rebar

Define the representation and the location of the bending shape. Here you can also define the hook directions.

Description

Rebar geometry

Schematic representation of the bending shape (without bending radius in the corners of the bending shape).

Bending shape is represented with bending radius.

Use same line as pattern

Yes

Color and line type are defined based on what is set in the drawing properties.

No

Color and line type are defined based on what is set in this plugin (the options Color and Line type listed below).

Color

Line type

Rebar representation

Single line

The bending shape is represented with a single line.

Double lines (nominal diameter)

The bending shape is represented with double lines and the nominal diameter of the bar is considered.

Double lines (actual diameter)

The bending shape is represented with double lines and the actual diameter of the bar is considered, including the ribs on the bar.

Rebar location

Define the position of the bending shape. The options are:

The bending shape is located on the line of insertion point P1. The bending shape will be positioned centered relative to the position of the rebar in the concrete shape.

Example:

Insertion point P1 is the start point of the bending shape.

Example:

The area around the rebar is divided in four quadrants. The insertion point can be picked in any random quadrant.

The position of the bending shape is based on the picked quadrant.

The image below shows an example from the front side of a concrete beam. The area around a rebar is divided in four quadrants:

Insertion point in quadrant 1: bending shape is centered on top of the rebar.

Insertion point in quadrant 2: bending shape is centered on the left from the rebar.

Insertion point in quadrant 3: bending shape is centered under the rebar.

Insertion point in quadrant 4: bending shape is centered on the right from the rebar.

 

Example:

Hook directions

Define the direction of the hooks of the bars.

Seen from a top view from a beam for example, the direction of the hooks can be defined as Top, Middle and Bottom in the beam. The options are:

Top

Middle

Bottom

Use the Thickness box to define an area for the bars in the top and bottom side of the beam. See also the image below:
