# Do You Know the Parameter “SOFiSTiK_Not_Bent”?¶

Use the SOFiSTiK_Not_Bent parameter to define rebars as straight bars for the bending schedule even if they are not straight in your model. This is very useful for rebars with a radius exceeding the maximum limit for which a preformed radius is required.

Note

For Rebars with Geometry parameter set to “Free Form” the SOFiSTiK_Not_Bent parameter will be activated automatically.
