Dear SmartParts users,
I am trying to model a 3Dimensional shear stirrup (see picture attached) using SmartParts scripting.
I've had success so far in scripting reinforcement functions for rectangular and circular slabs, piles etc.
However, I have stumbled upon this problem. As the picture attached we can see it's a shear stirrup in 3 dimensions.
Out of the most complex functions I've tried the following:
But they don't work. I have only managed to create something similar in picture 2, the 2 dimensional open stirrup.
My thinking is that these functions only work in plane conditions and reinforcement is limited only for 2Dimensions and that doesn't help me.
I tried to work around this, by creating reinforcement groups in different planes and merging them together, but I failed.
I would kindly appreciate any tips I can get to model this, if it can be modelled?
If not, then a confirmation of why this couldnn't work is good for me too.
If the answer is no, can PythonParts be able to model this?
Thank you so much,
