While doing Rebar detailing, it is the standard practice to display or show where the Rebar get ends so that one can visualize the location of start and end of Rebar End. In ProConcrete we can show this bar End detail in some line geometry. It can be shown as Arc or Line. Below is one snapshot for this.
In this snap you can see the Rebar end is shown as Arc which indicates that Rebar gets end here. However there are some more types of Ticks to show this Rebar End. This document will explain what are those possibilities and how to achieve those.
The Bar End Detail is controlled by display.sys file. The display.sys file have variable which controls these detail. Please follow below steps to know about this.
1. Ensure first in which workspace you are working. This can be checked when you hover over the blue button at the right bottom corner.2. Then you need to open display.sys file of that particular WorkSpace by browsing to "C:\ProgramData\Bentley\ProStructures CONNECT Edition\Configuration\WorkSpaces\GreatBritain\Standards\ProStructures\Rebar\Detailing\Metric"
3. Open the display.sys file in notepad and find for the variable "TICK". This variable actually controls the bar End and following sre the values you need to put to get different result
> When TICK = 1, display Arc> When TICK = 0, display Line> When TICK = 2, display line if it is to be drawn starting from end point of Rebar and going backward
And in this way you can achieve different types of Bar End symbol.
