Assign running numbers to reinforcement

You can assign running numbers to reinforcement in cast units. You can then use the running numbers in addition to or instead of the position numbers in reinforcement marks and tables in drawings, and in reports.

Use the Rebar sequence numbering macro to assign cast unit specific running numbers (1, 2, 3...) to the reinforcement in the model. Running numbers are unique inside each cast unit. The macro does the following:

  • Updates the position numbers of the modified model objects using the Number modified objects command in Drawings & reports > Perform numbering.

  • Assigns running numbers to the reinforcing bars, reinforcing bar groups, and reinforcement meshes in the model.

  • Saves a running number as the user-defined attribute Rebar sequence number (REBAR_SEQ_NO) of each bar, group, or mesh.

  1. Click the Applications & components button in the side pane to open the Applications & components catalog.
  2. Click the arrow next to Applications to open the applications list.
  3. Double-click Rebar sequence numbering to start the macro.
  4. To show the running numbers in drawings and reports, use the user-defined attribute REBAR_SEQ_NO.
