The ASDO Tie bar system is available as part of the bocad software International versions 22_9655 and above.

Through the configuration menu you have access to the European Technical Approval, the ASDO tie bar brochure and a jobsite installation guide for tension rods.

The screen shot below shows a compression rod system which is also included in the software. Tube dimensions according to DIN EN 10216-1 can be selected and the compression rod configured to your needs. The configuration considers production restrictions but the compression rod has to be checked for buckling separately.

When the model is finished you can use the report generator to create a list of all installed ASDO tie bar systems for your documentation and use it for enquiry purposes.
