As we all know, we don’t have to remodel when quantifying for rebar in TRB, instead we can just import TAS model. Here we present tips that could help you better reuse the TAS model than 80% of the users!
Tip#1：Beam support settings
First thing first, when we create TAS model, try to follow the structure drawings and consider how it can better serve rebar calculation as well.
Then we can import the model to TRB, and one the most import steps afterwards, is to check and adjust the beam support. Because it could affect the anchorage, in another word the quantity of rebar.
It’s recommended to check or even change the beams support settings if necessary according to your drawings, which could improve the identification rate, therefore save your time.
Moreover, we provide you various support setting and modification functions:
- Batch identify support: automatically identify support based on Beam support setting
- Re-pick span: refresh support info
- Set beam support: manually set the beam support
- Delete beam support: delete the wrong beam support
Tip#2：How to deal with “missing slab” after importing to TRB？
Sometimes there will be some missing slabs, and the reason for that is slabs with different elevation should be in different layers in TRB so that it would be easier and faster to generate slab rebar. So if the slabs are in different elevation or overlapping, they will end up being importing into different layers.
（as shown below)
You could view in 3D to check if the slabs are missing or just in different layers, because all slabs regardless which layers they are in would be shown in 3D.
When happens, it’s recommended to copy the slab to layer 1 and delete the slab on layer 2. If it’s overlapping we recommend to adjust the slab first before copying to layer 1.
And that would be the must-know tips when importing to TRB, hopefully it could be helpful for you and stay tuned for more techniques of model interconnection!
