Improvements

  • Now the (Un)Freeze tool support rebar coupler, rebar presentation, rebar numbering, worksets, edit host, original bar types, Mass per Length, material parameter and rounding override (technology change from rebar container to free form rebar).
  • Improved Browse rebar dialog by showing only assignments (sheets) in case of at least one visible corresponding rebar.
  • The functionalities Stretch, Trim, Move and Rotate rebars has been improved to create varying rebar sets instead of rebar container if the rebar layout it allows.
  • License behavior has been changed so that the license will not be blocked at project start anymore. Now the license will be checked at the first click on a SOFiSTiK tool earliest.
  • Extended List tool dialog to show reinforcement elements with its connected detail elements in a reinforcement browser hierarchy. The right-click menu allows you to select elements at a desired level in the hierarchy to edit them easily and consitently.
  • New tool to create partial Shape Details next to certain elements or detailing situations together with an additional setting of a separate annotation family type.
  • Extended SOFiSTiK Assignment workflow to support rebar coupler. The coupler will be assigned automatically according to the connected bar at end treatment 1.
  • The description of 3D shapes in bending schedule has been improved by adding a coordinate table and improved images.
  • New rebar segment table with lengths and angles for non standard shapes in the open xml (docx) bending schedule.
  • Extended Sort Order for Marks settings. The Revit ID has been integrated in a more intuitive way to understand how the sort order functionality works.
  • Extended Shape Details for non standard shapes to show End Treatments of connected rebar coupler and bend angles in case of unequal to 90 degree.
  • New consistent workflow and visualization of end treatments in shape details, shape images and bending schedules.
  • New About Dialog in the help dropdown panel with shows information about current version, build number etc.
  • New possibility to set the language of the user interface according to Revit (with fallback to English in case of not supported languages).
