HowTo Model Rebar in CMU Cores

Hi, I'm trying to figure out a good way to model vertical rebar that connects two ring beams with cement block wall between them. I model the cement block wall as an ARCH Wall with make blocks turned on. The ring beams are ARCH Structures. Modeling the horizontal rebar in the beams is not a problem....

Re: ARCH Rebar - what is cause of unintialized variable

Unknown command 'Draft_Edit' Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/dglaser/.FreeCAD/Mod/Reinforcement/StraightRebar.py", line 137, in clicked self.accept(button) F...

Re: Need help diagnosing access violation

I forgot to mention that the same model works fine on an old Lenovo Thinkpad 410 running Windows 7.
