How can you find out which lengths of a cross-section are installed?


A parts list of the cross sections can be generated with the dimensioning modules (eg RF- / STEEL EC3) and output to Excel (see figure 1).
Furthermore the bar table can be exported to Excel. This table can then be evaluated in Excel, for example using a PivotTable (see Figure 2).
In addition, information such as the length of bars or material mass can be determined using the Center of Gravity and Info feature. To do this, first select the bars with the relevant cross-section and then select the "Center of gravity and information" command from the context menu (see Figure 3).
Alternatively, the output of a parts list can be programmed with the RF / RS-COM interface, as described in the entry COM Interface in VBA | Creating a parts list shown.
