If you have an endstop that is placed in the edge of the element the bar that is parallel with the edge of the element needs to be moved in at least 90 mm from the edge of the element to avoid collisions with the support of the endstop.


In the example above the endstop is placed in the short edge of the element. The reinforcement that is perpendicular to the edge doesn’t need any correction.

The endstop can of course also be placed on the long side of the element as in the example above. It’s important that the bars that are moved are moved with the grid in the Production Settings.


The bars are moved with the grid which means that many times the bars need to be moved more than 90 mm to align with the grid system. In the example above the edge distance becomes 129 instead of 90 because there is a collision with the electrical item.

Formslab definition

Moves the closest reinforcement bar parallel with the edge of the FormSlab, a certain value specified if the edge has an endstop connected to it.

What production line is chosen is important as this is relevant to what the distance will be. 

In this case "Mould 5" is chosen.


The properties need to be checked for the chosen production settings, in this case, "Mould 5". Right-click on "Mould 5" to access the properties. 


The value defined in the variable needs to be evenly divisible with the value set in "Grid transverse value (mm)", in this case, 25 mm.

The user example is set to 90. As 90 is not evenly divisible with 25 the next evenly divisible is 100 and this is what the distance is set to. 

When the variable is empty the distance from the edge to the endstop is not taken into consideration.
