Description

The Arch Rebar Straight.png Straight Rebar tool allows user to create a straight reinforcing bar in the structural element.

StraightRebar.png

How to use

  1. Create a structure element
  2. Select any face of the structure
  3. Then select Arch Rebar Straight.png Straight Rebar from the rebar tools
  4. A task panel will pop-out on the left side of the screen as shown below StraightRebarDialog.png
  5. Select the desired orientation
  6. Give the inputs like front cover, right side cover, left side cover, bottom cover and diameter of the rebar
  7. Select the mode of distribution either amount or spacing
  8. If spacing is selected, a user can also opt for custom spacing
  9. Pick selected face is used to verify or change the face for rebar distribution
  10. Click OK or Apply to generate the rebars
  11. Click Cancel to exit the task panel

Properties

  • DATAOrientation: It decides the orientation of the rebar (like a bottom, top, right and left).
  • DATAFront Cover: The distance between rebar and selected face.
  • DATARight Cover: The distance between the right end of the rebar to right face of the structure.
  • DATALeft Cover: The distance between the left end of the rebar to the left face of the structure.
  • DATACover along: These property facilities the user to specify either top or bottom cover.
  • DATABottom Cover: The distance between rebar from the bottom face of the structure.
  • DATATop Cover: The distance between rebar from the top face of the structure.
  • DATAAmount: The amount of rebars.
  • DATASpacing: The distance between the axes of each bar.

Scripting

The Arch Rebar Straight.png Straight Rebar tool can by used in macros and from the python console by using the following function:

1. When orientation of straight rebar is horizontal:

makeStraightRebar(FrontCover, CoverAlong, RightCover, LeftCover, Diameter, AmountSpacingCheck, AmountSpacingValue, Orientation = "Horizontal", Structure, Facename) 

Note:

  • Type of CoverAlong argument is a tuple. Syntax: (<Along>, <Value>). Here we have horizontal orientation so we can pass Top Side and Bottom Side to <Along> arguments.

For eg. ("Top Side", 20) and ("Bottom Side", 20)

2. When orientation of straight rebar is vertical:

makeStraightRebar(FrontCover, CoverAlong, TopCover, BottomCover, Diameter, AmountSpacingCheck, AmountSpacingValue, Orientation = "Horizontal", Structure, Facename) 

Note:

  • Type of CoverAlong argument is a tuple. Syntax: (<Along>, <Value>). Here we have vertical orientation so we can pass Left Side and Right Side to <Along> arguments.

For eg. ("Left Side", 20) and ("Right Side", 20)




  • Adds a Straight reinforcing bar object to the given structural object.
  • If no Structure and Facename is given, it will take user selected face as input.
  • Here CoverAlong argument is having type tuple.
  • Returns the new Rebar object.

Example: Creating Straight rebar.

import Arch, StraightRebar
structure = Arch.makeStructure(length=1000.0, width=1000.0, height=400.0)
structure.ViewObject.Transparency = 80
FreeCAD.ActiveDocument.recompute()
rebar = StraightRebar.makeStraightRebar(20, ("Bottom Side", 20), 20, 20, 8, True, 10, "Horizontal", structure, "Face1") 

Changing properties of Straight rebar.

import StraightRebar
StraightRebar.editStraightRebar(rebar, 25, ("Top Side", 20), 20, 20, 8, True, 10, "Horizontal")
