Create a reinforcement strand pattern
You can create prestressed straight or deflected strands for concrete parts.
To allow positioning of the strands, first create points to the part you are creating the strands for. On the Edit tab, click Points and select On plane to open the Point Array dialog box. Define the point coordinates.
On the Rebar tab, click
If you need to modify the properties before you create the reinforcement, hold down Shift and click the Strand command to open the Strand pattern properties.
- Select the part you are creating strands for.
Pick each of the points that you are using to position the strands (for example, at the end of a part).
The points you pick define the first cross section.
- Click the middle mouse button to finish picking.
Pick points to position the strands.
If you create a single cross section, pick two points to define the length of the strands.
If you create two or more cross sections, for each cross section, pick points to indicate the strand positions. Pick the strand positions in the same order as for the first cross section.
Click the middle mouse button to finish picking.
