Hello all,

1. Does anyone know how to get AS to add DBA (weldable rebar) to bill with the grade?

I am using round bar to show the image, but the bill shows "rb" and I tried to make a user material, but failed. any help would be appriciated.

2. is anyone else having trouble with the stud grade ASTM 108 showing up correctly in the bill? mine has an error message" unknown material"

Attached is a pdf that shows some of the problems I am faced with.

Thanks, Sean

Hi Sean,

Regarding your question number 1. To add DBA to the BOM with the grade you can change the name of the material in the AstorProfiles, however in your case you want to keep the original profile. You would have to create a new one. As this is an extensive process this would have to be done by Graitec. In order to perform this service we need you AstorProfile.mdb.

In response to your question number 2 regarding the stud grade ASTM 108 having an "Unknown" message in your BOM. This is a bug in the AS 2014.   We are aware of it and will inform Development so this issue can be rectified in the next service pack.

Best Regards,


Janet Back
