2019-2 Update Release (01.11.2018)

  • Fixed an issue that was preventing the Assign tool to work for reinforcement systems (fabric area, path or rebar area). [RCD-069]
  • Fixed an issue that has caused wrong rebar quantity in case different multiplier for different rebar sets of the same mark. [RCD-054]
  • Fixed an issue that has caused the license check (via Autodesk ID) to fail in certain cases where the used version is different to the subscribed version. [RCD-063]
  • Fixed an issue that was preventing the setting Image Width to work for the images in the bending schedule (docx). [RCD-087]

  • Fixed an issue that was preventing separate schedule output files for each revision on sheet. [RCD-083]
  • Fixed an issue that has caused a Fabric_Length and Fabric_Width of 0 in the schedule (docx) in case a bent fabric has just one segment (is straight because of the sketch). [RCD-080]
  • Fixed an issue that has caused a placement offset of rebar couplers after using the Group tool. [RCD-078]
  • Fixed an issue that has caused duplicated rebar coupler after using the Group or Freeze tool. [RCD-079]
  • Fixed an issue that was preventing the shape detail of bent fabrics to get updated properly. [RCD-042]
  • Fixed an issue that was preventing to appear the revision parameter caused by the Freeze Rebar tool. [RCD-082]
  • Fixed an issue that has caused an error at the Copy with Annotations Details tool. [RCD-061]

Improvements

  • New option for the Tag tool to place a small symbolic shape next to the annotation of a rebar. [RCD-001]
  • New option for the Hide and Tag tool in the Layer Defintion dialog to display rebars of different layers with different styles (e.g. continuous or dashed line). [RCD-012]
  • Possibility to Import (settings dialog) the bar types together with the SOFiSTiK_Mass_per_Length to show the mass per unit length for each diameter and calculate the corresponding total weights. [RCD-020]
  • The following parameters for the schedule (docx) has been added to retrieve the corresponding rebar type information: bartype_name, bartype_subcategory, bartype_mass_per_length. [RCD-071]
  • New filter funtionality to separate the weight schedule (docx) between bent and straight bars to calculate the costs accordingly. [RCD-022]
  • Variable Rebar Sets which are geometrically identical will detected as similar and get the same bar mark instead of getting separate marks anymore. [RCD-034]
  • The All Shapes tool now supports a selection of bars and chosing a view scale to create different shape collections. Additionally an update mechanism which adds new created shapes to existing drafting views has been implemented. [RCD-045, RCD-053, RCD-070]
  • The Bar End tools now supports a selection of bars and provides the possibility to continue placing bar end symbols without clicking the tool in the ribbon again. [RCD-046]
  • Extended possibility for the parameter SOFiSTiK_Text_VariableLength (settings dialog)to tag the submark information of the set (e.g. “1 to 23”). [RCD-047]
  • Serveral issues for a better readability of the shape images in the schedules (docx and Revit) has been implemented.

2019-1 Update Release (01.09.2018)

Resolved Issues

  • Fixed a problem that caused to fail the license check in a certain situation of Autodesk AppStore customers with licensing via Autodesk account and AppID.
  • Fixed a schedule issue at the export of a selection of rebars that was showing the entire mark quantity instead of the related quantity of the users selection.
  • Fixed an issue that was preventing to annotate the rebar segments in the shape images with values instead of the parameters A, B, C ...
  • Fixed an issue at the copy reinforcement sheet functionality that was preventing to place rotated views in the target sheet properly.
  • Fixed an issue that has caused an error message if the new Revit parameter Workshop Instructions has been changed from Keep Straight to Bent.
  • Fixed an issue that was preventing to show the reinforcement weight in imperial untits (US) in the schedule (DOCX).
  • Fixed an issue at the split rebars tool for bent rebars that was causing generation of wrong rebar elements and layout rules.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing the schedule (Report Browser) to use the 2018 setting files instead of 2019 in %User%\AppData\Roaming\SOFiSTiK\SOFiSTiK Reinforcement Detailing 2019.

Improvements

  • The marks of rebars and fabrics will be set instantly when creating or editing reinforcement elements.
  • The calculation method A (outside dimesions) for bent fabrics has been implemented.
  • The set marks functionality Sort Order for Marks has been extended with the Option Revit-ID.
  • New Checkbox to set a sheet as finalized to increases the performance has been added. Note: Parameters of Reinforcement objects and corresponding rebar detail elements, that are assigned to the sheet with activeted SOFiSTiK_Finalized parameter will not kept up-to-date.
  • The setting Consider Stock Length for Running Length marks results in the schedule as position with stock length and quantity instead of a quantity of 1 and the position total length.
