# Do You Know the Parameter “SOFiSTiK_Not_Bent”?¶

Use the SOFiSTiK_Not_Bent parameter to define rebars as straight bars for the bending schedule even if they are not straight in your model. This is very useful for rebars with a radius exceeding the maximum limit for which a preformed radius is required.

SOFiSTiK_Not_Bent parameter is activated automatically for Free Form Rebars (Geometry parameter value ‘Free form’) with complicated geometry. Presenting these rebars in bending schedule makes no sense. You can decide to deactivate this parameter, if you choose so.

Note

For Rebars with Geometry parameter set to “Free Form” the SOFiSTiK_Not_Bent parameter will be activated automatically.
