					MasterRC T9: Tutorial


T9.1 Notes and Prerequisites
 This tutorial is designed to introduce you to the methods behind
  MasterRC.
 This tutorial is based on MasterRC 2003. The detailing methods used in
  the tutorial will be applicable to newer versions of MasterRC, however
  there may be shortcuts or modified dialogues in a newer version.
 It is assumed that the user is competent at using AutoCAD and has a
  good knowledge of detailing reinforcement.
 MasterRC gives you prompts in the command line area like any other
  AutoCAD function. It is important to read these. We recommend a 3-line
  command area display for clarity.
 The AutoCAD “undo” command must be used with caution as many
  MasterRC commands will consist of many individual steps making it very
  difficult to know how many undo steps to go back. To rectify this problem
  MasterRC places an undo marker before starting a MasterRC command.
  Thus to undo a MasterRC command use the undo back command.
  MasterRC has a button to do this for you . When learning MasterRC
  this button will be your friend.
 MasterRC draws Bars and labels as intelligent data and as such they
  should not be deleted, stretched or modified using ordinary AutoCAD
  tools. Use MasterRC’s inbuilt functions.
 To learn more about MasterRC please refer to the ShowMeHow videos
  supplied on the main MasterSeries CD.
 Check the web site at www.masterseries.co.uk/Downloads.htm for an
  updated version.
 Where a MasterRC toolbar button has been used then the alternative menu
  options and the command line mnemonic input have been given below it inside []
  brackets.
  Example
      Select
      [MasterRC>New bar>standard (and choose shape code 20) ADN ]
 Please refer to document MasterRC 7: Toolbars and Command Summary for a
  detailed list of Commands, Buttons and their Mnemonics (acronyms)




                         T9 MasterRC Tutorial                           T9 - 1
T9.2 Setup

T9.2.1 Drawing Set-up
 Load AutoCAD.
 Load MasterRC sample drawing outline.dwg
  from the MasterRC directory.
   You may wish to save the drawing to another
   name to preserve the original file.
 Drop the MasterRC menu and from toolbars
  select show main toolbar.
 Dock this toolbar at the side of the screen as shown opposite.
 Pick the     button in the MasterRC Main toolbar to Load MasterRC.
      [MasterRC>STARTUP]
 The drawing Setup Dialogue appears. Set up an A1
  drawing Sheet at 1:25 Scale, with border and select
  OK.
 Enter something in the Title Block Dialogue for your
  own reference and select OK.
 Using End Snap pick the bottom right corner of the
  border to place the title block.
 If you have configured MasterRC to choose your
  code every time you start MasterRC, Choose your applicable detailing code.
  This tutorial assumes detailing to BS 4466 and describes shape codes based on
  this code.

T9.2.2 Element Titles
We now place two element titles, one for the beam elevation and the other for the
beam cross-section. These allow MasterRC to handle different drawing scales and
to associate reinforcing bars with a particular member and also indicate how many
copies of a member exist. This information is used at scheduling time.

 Select    to place an element title for the Beam
  Elevation.
     [MasterRC>Titles>Place element frame/title]
 Draw a rectangle around your beam elevation
  giving a reasonable gap above and below the beam to allow our beam labels to
  fit by picking bottom left and then picking top right)
 Edit the dialogue as shown opposite and select OK.
 Pick below the centre line for the middle column to insert the element title.

                          T9 MasterRC Tutorial                             T9 - 2
 Pick a point inside the frame to confirm the inside of the frame and reply OK to
  the confirmation.
 Repeat the same process for the beam cross-section inputting the title as
  Section A-A and scale as 1:10. Your view should look like this.




T9.2.3 MasterRC Options
 Select Options button       to set your preferences for the detailing method.
       [MasterRC>Settings>Options]
 We will have 25 mm cover to the links and 10-mm links so set the cover to 35
  mm.
 We will label later as this is more efficient when doing beams.
 We will use Expert mode to speed up detailing.
 We will draw bars with Blobbed Bar Ends.
 Select OK.

T9.2.4 Practice drawing bars
Before we start defining our first bar we should take a look at how bars are defined.
There are 3 basic methods.
          1. By schedule dimensions
          2. In space using schedule dimensions. (from a point)
          3. Fitted to an outline
See: Chapter 2 “MasterRC Developing Bars” for detailed descriptions of all the
different drawing methods.
The third method is the most popular and efficient and is the one we will use.
The first or only leg of a bar is the most critical so we will practice on a Shape code
20.
 Set your drawing layer to the outline layer.
 In an empty area in the top right of the drawing draw a rectangle 2000 mm long
  by 750 mm high to represent a small beam.
 Place an element frame        around the rectangle. Use the default scale and
  don’t worry about the title. (see T9.2.2 for more help)
                           T9 MasterRC Tutorial                              T9 - 3
Let us draw a bar along the bottom of the beam with 35 bottom cover, starting 200
mm from the left end and ending 300 mm from the right end.




In placing the bar MasterRC will in essence ask for 3 items
     1. The start of the bar. 200 mm from the left face.
     2. The orientation. Parallel and 35 mm above bottom line
     3. The end of the bar. 300 mm from the Right face
We could draw a set of lines offset from the faces of the beam at 200, 35 and 300
mm.
Indeed, the 35 mm offset would need to be 35 mm, plus half a bar diameter.
But in MasterRC we don’t need to do that. We treat every line as a cover/offset
line. This is quicker once you get used to the input.
     For each of the 3 picks you normally pick a face and then indicate the side that
    the bar lies on and the cover or offset from that face.
We are using Expert Mode. This
reduces the amount of input required
during the placement of bars. It
does this by using your initial side
selection point (pick 1a) as the offset
side for all bar legs.
For our straight bar we will pick thus:


So let’s define the bar.



 Select         from the MasterRC tool bar.
                                             .
         [MasterRC>New bar>standard (and choose shape code 20) ADN ]
This will display the bar dialogue screen as shown opposite. This dialogue allows
you to set the bar type, diameter, shape, view, layer and placement method for the
bar.



                             T9 MasterRC Tutorial                            T9 - 4
 Setup the dialogue as shown opposite for a
  T16 bar. The fitted method is the most
  popular as it places the bar to the outline.
  Select OK.
 Keep an eye on the AutoCAD command line
  in order to understand what MasterRC is
  prompting you for. Remember cover means
  cover or offset.




 Pick the left hand side (pick 1) to indicate the start of the bar.
 Pick anywhere inside the beam. (Pick 1a) to indicate the offset side for all other
  picks.
 Input 200 mm at the command line as the start cover/offset from the left face
  (pick 1)
 Pick the bottom of the beam (Pick 2) to indicate the alignment of the bar
You now need to set the offset to the edge of the bar.
 Input 35 mm at the command line or just press enter to accept the default 35
  mm cover/offset
 Pick the Right hand side (pick 3) to indicate the end of the bar.
 Input 300 mm at the command line as the start cover/offset from the Right face
  (pick 3)
 Press return to confirm the bar.
Done
Your first bar is now defined. If you made a mess don’t worry. MasterRC places an
undo marker before starting a MasterRC command. Thus to undo a MasterRC
command use the undo back command. MasterRC has a button to do this for
you .
The main problem new users have is going too fast and pressing pressing enter
instead of picking or visa versa. This can be more prevalent when you use the right
mouse button as an enter key. Don’t panic you can always use the undo back
button
Practice defining and undoing   the bar. Once you are fluent, remove the bar using
the undo back button    and then erase the rectangle and element title and frame
using the standard AutoCAD erase command.T




                           T9 MasterRC Tutorial                           T9 - 5
T9.3 Detailing the Beam




T9.3.1 Detailing Beam Span 1
 Zoom in on the first span.
Bar 1: Left U-Bar
We are now ready to place our first Bar. This will be our left hand U-Bar and it will
project 750 mm from the column face.

 Select    and then from the fly out the shape code
  38 U-Bar.
     [MasterRC>New bar>standard (and choose shape code 38) ADN ]
This will display the bar dialogue screen as shown opposite. This dialogue allows
you to set the bar type, diameter, shape, view, layer and placement method for the
bar.


 Setup the dialogue as shown opposite for a
  T16 bar. The fitted method is the most
  popular as it places the bar to the outline.
  Select OK.
When placing a U-bar using the fitted method,
MasterRC prompts you for:
 The start, alignment and end of the first leg,
 The direction, end and tolerance for the
 middle leg and finally
 The end of the last leg.
 For each of the start, end and alignment faces you normally pick a face and then
 indicate the side that the bar lies on and the cover or offset from that face.
We are using Expert Mode. This reduces
the amount of input required during the
placement of bars. It does this by using
your initial side selection point as the side
for all bar legs.

                            T9 MasterRC Tutorial                            T9 - 6
As you will see from the sketches above the position of the first side selection point
controls the development of the bar.


Let us define our U-Bar as shown opposite starting at
the bottom left hand end.
 First select the face of the column to define the
  start of the bar. pick1
 We are now prompted to select the side on which
  the bar lies. In Expert mode, this point will be used
  for all three legs, so we can pick any point inside
  the final bar. pick2
 Now we enter the bar offset (cover) from the face of the column. In this case we
  want the bar to start 750 mm from the column face. 750
 Select the face to align this leg. pick3
 Press enter to accept the shown default cover of 35 mm as the bar offset. enter
 Select the face to limit the leg. pick4
 Press enter to accept the shown default cover of 35 mm as the bar offset. enter
 We are now asked to select the area into which to continue the bar. Even
  though we defined the bar from right to left, the bar can continue from either end
  and can also continue up or down. Pick a point above the left end of the bar to
  continue in this direction. pick5
 Select the face to limit the middle leg. pick6
 Press enter to accept the shown default cover of 35 mm as the bar offset. enter
 Press enter to accept the default leg tolerance. enter
 Select the inner column face to limit the last leg. pick7
 Now enter the bar offset (cover) from the face of the column. Again we want the
  bar to start 750 mm from the column face. 750
 The bar is now in place and you are asked for your final confirmation. enter


Your first bar is now placed


Bar 2: Bottom Bar over Centre Support
We will now place 2 bars over the internal support using the centred method.

 Select    and from the fly out and then the
  shape code 20 Straight. It does not matter if you
  select the wrong shape code as you can change it
  inside the dialogue.
   [MasterRC>New bar>standard (and choose
   shape code 20) ADN ]
 Select a T-16 shape code 20 and set the first leg method to centred.


                           T9 MasterRC Tutorial                             T9 - 7
Placing the centred bars is very easy
 We are now prompted to select the side on which the bar lies. pick2
 Press enter to accept the shown default cover of 35 mm as the bar offset. enter
 Select the centre line by snapping onto it using “perp” or “mid”. Pick3
 Now enter the over all length of the bar. We want the bar to project 1000 mm
  from the centre line. 2000
 The bar is now in place and you are asked for your final confirmation. enter


Bar 3: Top Bar over Centre Support
 Repeat this same method to place the top bar over the support as a T32 with an
  overall length of 2500 mm.


Bar 4: Top Mid Span Bar
With the support top bars in place, we will now use the straight lap method to add
the mid-span top bar.

 Select to draw another bar      .
    [MasterRC>New bar>standard (and choose shape code 38) ADN ]
Note there are several ways to select to draw a new bar
       1. Pick the appropriate bar shape from the toolbar
       2. Pick any bar shape from the toolbar and then choose the appropriate bar
          shape from either the drop list or pop-up slide (“Select <” button) in the
          bar dialogue.
       3. Type ADN (ADd New) then choose the appropriate bar shape from either
          the drop list or pop-up slide (“Select <” button) in the bar dialogue.
       4. If the last operation was placing a new bar then pressing the enter (or
          space) key will repeat the last command. You then choose the
          appropriate bar shape from either the drop list or pop-up slide (“Select <”
          button) in the bar dialogue.

 In the bar dialogue box change the bar diameter to 16 mm
 Set the first leg method to “Two laps, Straight Lap”
 Pick the end of the first existing bar to lap to. pick1
 Confirm that this is the end you had in mind. enter
 Enter a concrete grade so that MasterRC can
  calculate an appropriate lap length. 40 N/mm2
 Choose the lap type. Tension Lap
 You can insert the bar at any point, offset it from any face, or place it in line with
  the existing bar. Select the outline to place the bar offset from the outline. Pick2
 We are now prompted to select the side on which the bar lies. Pick3
 Press enter to accept the shown default cover of 35 mm as the bar offset. enter
                           T9 MasterRC Tutorial                              T9 - 8
   Pick the end of the second existing bar to lap to. Pick4
   Confirm that this is the end you had in mind. enter
   Choose the lap type. Tension Lap

We will now place a 25-mm cranked bar mid-span bottom.
 Select any bar shape to load the bar dialogue box.
 Change the bar diameter to 25-mm
 Set the first leg method to “Two laps, double crank”.
MasterRC will automatically change the bar shape to a double crank, shape code
43.
 Pick the end of the first existing bar to lap to. pick1
 Confirm that this is the end you had in mind. enter
You do not need to enter a concrete grade as MasterRC already knows it from the
last bar you placed.
 Choose the lap type. Tension Lap
 We are now prompted to select the side of the existing bar the new bar is lapped
  to. Pick2
 Pick the end of the second existing bar to lap to.
  Pick3
 Confirm that this is the end you had in mind. enter
 Choose the lap type. Tension Lap
 The crank dialogue now appears. Accept the
  default crank of 2 x 25 + 5 =55.
 The bar is now in place and you are asked for your final confirmation. Enter




T9.3.2 Kicking and marking bars
We will now kick and mark our bars.
Select    from the fly out opposite.
    [MasterRC> Bar ends > kick and mark KKMK]
We shall kick and mark the bars in an anti-clockwise order starting with the top right
bar.
 Pick the top right bar pick1.


                           T9 MasterRC Tutorial                            T9 - 9
 Pick above the right end of the bar where you
  want the mark to be pick2.
Only the height is important. MasterRC will place
the mark perpendicular to the end of the bar that
pick2 was closest to.
 Pick above the left end of the bar where you want the second mark to be pick3.
Again only the height is important. MasterRC will place the mark perpendicular to
the opposite end of the bar from your first end.
 Pick below the left end of the bar pick4.
This tells MasterRC the end and side of the bar you kick.
 Pick below the right end of the bar pick5.
Again this tells MasterRC the side of the bar you kick
Note:
          For full flexibility you are able to place each kick and mark on any side of
         the bar.
         Pick point 2 indicates the end for the first mark.
         Pick point 4 indicate the end for the first kick.
             The second mark and kick can     Pick side for second kick / <stop>:
            be suppressed, as indicated in
                                               Command:

 Select OK
 Repeat for Bar Marks 2, 4, 5 and 1
Note that bar mark 1 automatically knew that the endnote should be U-BARS.




The red text “El no. 1” is an item placed on the “view check” layer that lets us, the
detailer; know that this label will be scheduled with. i.e. Element 1. It is for our
guidance and, like the “Member Element Frame” is on a non-plotting layer. You can
turn this layer off if you like.

T9.4 Slab Detailing

T9.4.1 Defining Frame Elements
Before starting to detail the slab we need to create an Element Frame around the
slab.
 Create an element frame around each of the slab objects.
Make sure to leave a gap around each object as shown below.




 Zoom in on the floor slab frame.

T9.4.2 Floor Slab: Bars
Bar 1
Let us draw our first slab bar, a T16, horizontal and a1/4 of the way up the slab.
 Select to draw a straight bar

                           T9 MasterRC Tutorial                               T9 - 17
 Set the diameter to 16 mm
We could either use the “From a Point” method and manually define the angle and
length of the bar or we can use the “Fitted between 3 Faces” method as in the
beam (with a little twist).
The fitted method will be more accurate without the need to use a calculator.
 Select the “Fitted between 3 Faces” method.
 Set the layer to “Bottom or Far”. This will place the bar on a different layer.
 Select OK.
 Pick the left hand side of the slab to start the bar.
 Pick a point inside slab to indicate the side the bar lies on.
 Press Enter to accept the default 35 mm cover.
 Pick the bottom face to align the bar with this face.
Now we can either
          1. Accept the default cover and draw the bar close to the bottom face; or
          2. Input a manual offset of say 500 to 1000mm; or
          3. Use the mouse to roughly define the offset.
We shall choose option 3 as this is the most flexible.
 Pick the bottom side of the slab
 Now, with ORTHO on, move your mouse up until you get the desired offset and
  pick
 Pick the right hand face to limit the end of the bar
 Press Enter to accept the default 35 mm cover.
 Press Enter to accept the default bar tolerance
 Press Enter to accept the bar
The bar is now generated.
Bar 2
We will generate the vertical bar using the quick bar method
  from the flyout.
   [MasterRC>New bar>quick straight QS]
 Pick the quick bar button
 Select a T16 bar with 35 cover and no deduction.
 Set the layer to “Bottom or Far”. This will place the bar on a different layer.
 Select OK
 Select the bottom of the slab at the position you wish the bar to start. In this case
  pick a point ¾ of the way along the bottom edge.

                           T9 MasterRC Tutorial                             T9 - 18
 Select the opposite face anywhere along the face.
The bar is generated
Bars 3 & 4
 Repeat this process for the top steel using T12
  bars on the “Top/Near” layer to end up with details
  as shown opposite
 Draw these bars above and to the right of your first
  2 bars




T9.4.3 Floor Slab: Labelling Bars
 Slab bar labelling is done using the label bar run button     from the flyout.


   [MasterRC>Label>normal zones LAB]
 Pick one of the horizontal bars, at the point you wish the label to be attached to
  it.
 Pick the bottom face of the slab to start the bar run
 Pick inside the slab to indicate the side the bar lies
 Press Enter to accept the default cover
 Pick the top face of the slab to end the bar run
 Pick inside the slab to indicate the side the bar lies
 Press Enter to accept the default cover
We can now either create another group or start our leader line.
MasterRC expects to receive an odd number of pick points on this straight line. 2
for each bar run group plus one for the leader. The mistake novice users make is in
putting one too many or one too few pick points on this straight line. Once you do
your last pick point on the straight line you must turn through an angle. This tells
MasterRC that you have finished the runs and are drawing the leader, which can
have as many points as you like.
 Pick your 3rd pick point just above the top edge of the slab.
 Pick your 4th pick point just right of the last pick point.
 Press Enter to finish drawing leader points.




                            T9 MasterRC Tutorial                            T9 - 19
 Now set your spacing to 150 mm and select
  OK.
 Using the drop list set the End note to B1.
Your first bar run is detailed.
Detail the other 3 bars to give you a layout as
shown opposite.



T9.4.4 Floor Slab: Scheduling
Schedule the drawing using the schedule button       asking to Increment the revision
marker.
   [MasterRC>Schedule>view and print SCHED]
This will stamp each bar and label as having been with this issue of the schedule,
any modifications made afterwards will have a revision marker.
If prompted about compressing respond no.

T9.4.5 Floor Slab: Changing the detail
Place a small opening in the slab as shown opposite
We will now split the bar runs to go around the opening.
 From the Menu select MasterRC > Change Label >
  Groups > Split
 Pick the Text of the label for the lower horizontal bar
 Pick a point just above the opening to show where the
  first group ends
 Pick a point just below the opening to
  show where the second (new) group starts
 Confirm the spacing of the 2 groups as
  being the same as before. Enter, Enter
 Confirm the end spacing as before by
  pressing enter and the run is modified as
  shown above.
 Repeat this process for the other three
  bars.
 Finally using MasterRC > Change Label >
  Re-Position > Group Annotation move any
  label group text to ensure clarity.
To complete this slab we would need to trim around this opening. We shall just
place a U-Bar along the Bottom and top Edges.
 Select to draw a T12 U-Bar defining legs by schedule dimensions.
                            T9 MasterRC Tutorial                          T9 - 20
 Input the A, B and C legs as 500, 180 and 500 mm respectfully.
 Place the bar anywhere inside the slab and press enter to confirm shape.
 Pick any where inside the slab again.
 Using the bar manipulation dialogue set the view to Top and the Rotate button to
  rotate bar into position.
 Press Enter and then using the AutoCAD command move the bar into its correct
  position.
 Label the U-Bar using the       button setting the pitch to 200 mm
   [MasterRC>Label>normal zones LAB]
 Mirror the U-Bar to the top face using vertical edge with a midpoint snap to
  position th bar
 Copy the U-Bar Label up to the new U-Bar.
 Select MasterRC > Change Label > Associate with Bar to attach this new lable
  with this copy of the bar.
 Ask to Rebuild and Contine with the copied bar
 Pick the U-Bar to associate it with this label.
