Is there a tool to add bent corner bars to the horizontal reinforcing at the corner of two walls? See image below. Basically I would like to select the horizontal bars from the first wall and splice them to the horizontal bars in the second wall segment in the corners. The one created below was done using irregular dispatch tool but that is not very efficient. The spacing of the horizontal bars and the irregular dispatch bars do not line up well due to bar spacing method options available. This method of using bent bars to connect mats of wall reinforcing would be a pretty common occurance, so it seems there must be some tools I am missing that would create bent bars to connect horizonal reinforcing in walls. This would be something very similar to creating the Dowel connection bars between walls and footings for the vertical bars.
Hello Mike, Thanks for posting your query over the Bentley Communities Forum. In response to your query, currently we do not have a dedicated tool for modelling dowel reinforcement of this kind for walls. But I will discuss this scenario internally and will update you if we have any plans or workaround for the same. Regards, Alistair Lobo
