The path option under reinforcement is a nice tool to place rebars in, for example, slabs, It’s easy and fast.
So, you need to stay in a plan view to deploy the rebars, have a 3D view open for a better overview and maneuverability.
In our example, we want to place U-shaped rebars along the edges of our slab, this can be done by the “classic” technique used earlier, but the more effective way is to use path option.
First off, we use pick lines to pick the edges of our slab, further we press the double arrow because we want the U-shaped rebars to go into the slab and not outwards, and last edit the values under the properties tab.
When done, press the green finish button, the result will look like the picture below. The U-shaped rebars are or the wrong way, this is a quick fix, just mark them and hit the space bar a couple of times to get the desired position.
To remove the path system, press the Remove path system button, we now have the opportunity to change the a,b, and c values for our U-shaped rebars
