Bended mesh

The bended mesh is drawn like a normal stirrup with a distribution line and then you change the mesh type to be a bended mesh (see figure 2 for e.g.). The length of the distribution line will then be the length of the bended mesh. A bent mesh can also be added into endcap reinforcement. The weight is calculated by using the mesh spacing of the bars in both directions so it's rather exact. Below figure 2, there is a video describing how a bent mesh is created.
