Split Rebars

The Split Rebars tool splits rebars according to a stock length and places them with the a lap length. The tool provides the following two workflows:

  • Split entire straight rebar sets (e.g. in a large floor or foundation slab). Optionally, the arrangement can be staggered in this mode.
  • Split single rebar shapes (e.g. in a large section) as preparation for the Distribute tool.

For both workflows you can create dividing lines first (optional) to check or edit the way to split individually.

  1. Activate the view where you want to split rebars.
  2. Do one of the following:
  • Select a single bent bar or straight rebar sets to split > Click Reinforcement tab > Modify panel > icon_SplitRebars (Split Rebars).
  • Click Reinforcement tab > Modify panel > icon_SplitRebars (Split Rebars) > Select a single bent bar or straight rebar sets to split > Click Finish in the Options bar.

The Split Rebars dialog displays.
