This is a rebar modeling inquiry. I'm curious about how the reinforcement is placed along straight and skew plane
Among the property information of reinforcing bars, there is an option called Plane Alignment. This is an option to set the point where the angles of the start and end points of the arrayed rebars are aligned.
To give an example, Plane Alignment is basically set to Start Point and End Point respectively, as shown in the screen above.
This means that the angles of the starting point reinforcing bars are set according to the starting point plane and the end point reinforcing bars are aligned with the ending point plane.
If both settings are selected as the Start Point, the alignment proceeds only with the skew angle of the viewpoint as shown below.
(If all are selected as End Point, only the skew angle of the end point is arranged.)
Lastly, if both settings are set as Middle Point, both the start/end point reinforcing bars reflect the midpoint angle of the alignment as shown below.
Referring to the settings above, you can model the reinforcing bars that are affected by the skew and the reinforcing bars that are not affected by the skew and are arranged in a straight line.
