Arch rebar corners rounding

I'm building a simplest house possible, just to learn Arch workbench. A picture: simplest_house.png Now I'm at the foundation work, and I would like to place rebars inside the foundation. Just like on this picture: http://www.buildmyowncabin.com/footings/footings%20004.jpg (picture from here: http:/...

Re: Possible bug: Arch Rebar could not be created if sketch has an external geometry dependency

on creating the rebar, remove external edges automatically from the underlying sketch It is not the kind of the whole point of the rebar, to be able to reference it from the existing arch structure face? And once the rebar is created, I'm able to edit the sketch and put the external edge reference ...

Re: Possible bug: Arch Rebar could not be created if sketch has an external geometry dependency

I have found a workaround! Before clicking on arch rebar. Edit the sketch and remove the external geometry stuff (purple lines, and also the blue lines too) 5. click on arch rebar 6. go back on treeview, select the pad's face and reassign the sketch to the same face. 7. edit the sketch and put back ...

Re: Possible bug: Arch Rebar could not be created if sketch has an external geometry dependency

I think you must have selected something wrongly, following your steps gives me a normal scenegraph: Are you sure you are referencing external geometry (the edge of the pad) with your sketch? Because without external referencing it is working fine for me too. Thank you very much taking time double ...

Re: Creating a face from two rectangles (one inside another)

Dunno, how I could not figure it out myself.

Applying Upgrade tool to each of them, then selecting the bigger face,

Possible bug: Arch Rebar could not be created if sketch has an external geometry dependency

Mini tutorial:
1. create a rectangle in sketch (2meter long, 200mm width)
2. pad it (200mm height)
3. Convert it to arch structure
4. select face, create a sketch, reference to external geometry in the sketch
5. DAG results

Hi arcol, To make what you want, make two Draft rectangle, set the Make Face property to true to both of them. Select both the bigger and the smaller rectangle in this order and press the Draft Downgrade button. It is working with Draft Rectangle only. (but working!, thank you). But if I start from...

Select one edge by left clicking on it, then hold down the ctrl key and left click on the remaining three edges. then click create. I want the other way around. So like a "wall". (you crea...

Creating a face from two rectangles (one inside another)

This bugs me a lot. I'm unable to create a face when one rectangle is inside another. rectangle_within_rectangle.png It just create a face for the bigger rectangle (Draft's upgrade tool). rectangle_within_rectangle_upgraded.png Is it possible? Boolean operations (Part wb) is not working either. If I...
