    Notching distance



    Allows you to change the Notching distance for the elements of the Structural framing (beams, columns) for all elements in the current view, and for the specified.

    Automatically change the Notching distance for the elements of the Structural framing – enables the automatic mode for modifying the Notching distance. When the automatic mode is on, with any change in the geometry of the element of the structural frame, the element will have its Notching distance changed to the value specified in the function window.

    Attention! Enabling automatic mode is not for the current project, but for working in Revit as a whole. If you enable automatic mode, the next time you start Revit, the automatic mode will be enabled for any projects

    Rebars outside host


    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:
