Introduction

RebarWin is a rebar detailing windows program that allows you to quickly and easily create orders for a rebar workshop:

 

An order consists of a number of rows, each one of them indicating one or more turned armed steel bars to be created.

The data for the order as a whole: ( header )

The data for every row: ( detail )

To make the design of the piece you can use a database of models (standard shapes and structures) which is already included in the program.

By following this tutorial you will also learn how to enlarge this database by creating your own models.

You will be able to print the bar lists in a variety of different ways and formats, choosing for instance which data you want on the form, how it is classified, page size, if it's printed vertical or landscape, thus allowing more space for the design.

You can also print labels to be tied to the armed steel bundles in the workshop. A dot matrix printer is more capable of handling the hard continuous paper used for labels, whereas to print the bar lists an inkjet or laser printer is recommended as it allows a higher resolution than the dot matrix printer.

To keep an overview of each project you can print a list of the orders which make up that project, with total weight and weight for each diameter being calculated for each order and for the whole project, apart from some other useful statistics.
