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


A parts list of the cross-sections can be generated with the design modules (for example RF- / STEEL EC3) and output to Excel (see Figure 1).
Furthermore, you can export the member table to Excel. This table can then be analyzed in Excel, for example by using a PivotTable (see Figure 2).
In addition, you can determine information such as the length of members or the material mass with the "Centroid and Info" function. Select the members with the relevant cross-section and select the "Center and Info" command from the shortcut menu (see Figure 3).
Alternatively, you can program the output of a parts list with the RF- / RS-COM interface, as described in article COM Interface in VBA | Creating a parts list shown.
