Trouble Identifying Bar Shape code

Having some trouble with ProConcrete when trying to identify bar shapes, some of the bar shapes are not displaying on the schedule(replaced with ***) or are being confused with others. i.e. Bar shape 13 is showing as 21. and 23 showing as 44.

Using Rebar code for EUROCODE EN 1992-1 and shape code for British standard BS 8666:2005

What would be causing the confusion between the shape codes?

Is there a method of manually labeling a bar with a particular shapecode? 

  • Hi Mark,

    Thanks for posting this query in Bentley Community Forum.

    As per your description we can see you have two issues.

    1.  When trying to identify bar shapes, some of the bar shapes are not displaying on the schedule(replaced with ***) .

    For this while you are in the Positioning result dialog, you will get that shape with "***" symbol. Just double click which will redirect you to Shape management tool and that will allow you to assign name and then it will be working fine. For detail you can refer the following Wiki link

    2. Bar shape 13 is showing as 21. and 23 showing as 44.

    We need your file with proper explanation to investigate.
