    Get Model Data Into Families

    Hi
    I've been trying for over a month now to create an area reinforcement symbol that matches what I need.
    I need to get the reinforcement data out of the model that the annotation family will be put in, but can't figure out how. It must be possible, because the rebar tag accesses the data and lets you select what you want, and even the rebar symbol accesses the major and minor bar but does not distinguish between top and bottom.

    By the way I have added an image of what I am trying to get my area reinforcement to look like.
    I know I can do it if I can just figure out how to access the rebar data.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi, I am also trying to make a tag (or some kind of annotation) with the length and the shape of the reinforcement but it seems that the templates "Metric Generic Tag.rft" and "Metric Generic Annotation.rft" are with very limited capabilities and you can create only labels and cannot control line geometry with the shared parameters of the reinforcement. You also cannot embed dimension in the tag family which later to be transferred to the model with the reinforcement.
    I stopped trying and now I am making a more simple reinforcement tag with the shape symbol of the reinforcement + length parameters.
