While labeling in 2D in Drawing Model/Sheet model, we use variables as Presets to represent the rebar in various keywords, like Bar Marks, Dia of bar, No of Bars etc. Previously we had variables starting with $bn which generally represent the bar mark. But this variable is not working anymore.
2D Rebar - Bar Mark annotations shows as zero always.
I get proper rebar marks in the BBS but 2D drawing annotation doesn't pick up any data.
Im using this presets but none works.
$bn - bar mark number including range variation e.g., 26(a-g)$bnb - Bar mark number for first bar in a varying range e.g., 26a$bne - Bar mark number for last bar in a varying range e.g., 26g$bnx - Bar mark number excluding range variation e.g., 26============================================================================
The presets.sys file has complete list of variables to use as labels in 2D Rebar Annotation. This file is located under Workspaces in which user is doing modeling work.
Drive:\ProgramData\Bentley\ProStructures CONNECT Edition\Configuration\WorkSpaces\<yourworkspace>\Standards\ProStructures\Rebar\Detailing\Metric/Imperial
In that we can find list of variables. But $bn presets are discontinued in ProStructures version.
Please find the correct presets below,
# $kl - If positioned, $kl is the bar mark. If not positioned, $kl is total length of bar# $klb - Bar mark number for first bar in a varying range e.g., 26a. If not positioned, $kl is total length of bar # $kle - Bar mark number for last bar in a varying range e.g., 26g. If not positioned, $kl is total length of bar # $ql - Scheduled total bar length - $ql~a, $ql~b, $ql~c ... etc. retrieves the scheduled length of the scheduled dimension given by the letter that appears after the ~# $qlb - Scheduled total length of first bar in a varying bar range - ~a, ~b etc. can be added for specific bar dimensions# $qle - Scheduled total length of last bar in a varying bar range - ~a, ~b etc. can be added for specific bar dimensions.
