Rebars outside host

RebarsWithoutHost_16x16

For rebars, the search is performed in two ways: if the layout type is set to “Single”, then a check is made for the location of the rebar in the host. For other variants of the layout type, a check is made for the protrusion of the reinforcement from the host. In the case of checking the reinforcement in the system (for example, area reinforcement) check is performed on the protrusion of the reinforcement from the host

When you run the command, a dialog box appears with information on the number of rebars found in the project:

After the checking is completed, a dialog box with the results of the checking and the possibility to select rebars is displayed:
