General
Start Menu

If you create more than one user account in the user management of ReynaPro, the program
will ask you for the username and password during the start procedure. The request will be
omitted if only one user is listed.
For more information see Users, page 77.

ReynaPro

Main Menu

After running the program the main menu is displayed. From here you can select the different
functions of ReynaPro.
In the lower area of the main menu you can see information about the current job.
The list on the left hand contains all positions included the selected job.

ReynaPro

User Interface

With the following functions you can change the view of the drawings. You can scroll the
drawing and change the size of it. It is also possible to switch between the inside and outside of
the element.
Here you will get a first view of the functions of the user interface.
1

Move drawing up/down

Zoom in / out

3

Configuration of the width/height of the user interface

Cancel the input of elements with saving

ReynaPro

Input of Elements
To create a new job or to modify an existing job, select "Input of Elements" in the main menu.

Click "Create a New Job" to do so.


If you want to edit an existing job select "Modify an Existing Job".

Job Data Input

After running Input of Elements, the "Address Menu" screen will be displayed. Here you may
enter your customer's address and further job information. The job name is mandatory all other
fields may remain empty.
You get access to the internal address database where you select the designated address from
by clicking the button "Address Database".
Usually all users are able to access all jobs in ReynaPro. The access can be restricted to the
user who created the job. For this untick the checkbox "Allow all users to work on this job".
After you have entered all required information click the button "OK" to proceed to the next
window.
Note:
The discounts are only used on printouts "Quotation", "Order Confirmation" and "Invoice".
They aren't considered on the estimation printout.
10

ReynaPro
Position Selection Functions

To create a new position click the button "Create New Position".


If you want to modify or copy a position select the designated position and click the button "Edit
or Copy existing Positions".
A free text position can be created by the button "New Text Position". This position is
independent from elements and includes free designed text which may be accompanied by
estimation surcharges and labour hours. These positions are displayed in all relevant printouts.
You are able to add pure material positions, i.e. positions which include only single materials for
repair purposes, or you can do the same by importing existing lists from other programs in XMLformat. For this click the button "New Material Position".
You can load already applied positions from other jobs and Grid Price Lists by the buttons
"Position from another Job" and "Position from Grid Price List".
Select "Recalculate all Piece Lists" to update all positions after a modification of the database.
The item "Apportion Positions" applies costs (e.g. insulation, sheet metal, travel costs, etc.)
which are apportioned to all positions of the job. The apportion cost proportion of each position
is calculated by the ratio of position cost to total cost of job.
You may also insert positions from other software solutions in XML-format by the function
"Import".
If you want to insert positions from the position-library click the button "Library Position".
Hit

Esc

or the button "Main Menu" to leave Position Selection and to return to Main Menu.

Tip: Instead of clicking "Create New Position" you can just hit

Ins .

Tip:You are able to alter the address and job later by the button "Address" at the bottom of the
screen.
Tip: When you right-click a position a popup-menu opens and various functions to edit the
position are displayed.
11

ReynaPro

Create New Position

First enter a number for the position and if necessary also a brief description.
You can allocate positions to phases, too. To create a new phase click the button "New" behind
the dropdown-menu "Belongs to Phase" and enter the description of the new phase.
After this determine the new position's profile system. An example section of each system is
displayed during the selection. Depending on the system the program asks for e.g. glazing bead
variants or system variants (subsystems).
Having selected the profile system you directly proceed to the system preferences screen.
Tip:
Frequently used systems may be marked as favourites and are then always displayed on top of
the selection list. For this determine the system with the corresponding variants you want to set
as favourite and click the button "Add to Favourites". To remove systems from the favourite
list right-click on the corresponding entry and select the option "Remove from Favourites".

12

ReynaPro

This screen helps to raise the input speed of positions significantly.


The program would usually ask for each single transom, mullion, frame etc. during the following
input. As you frequently use the same transoms, mullions or frames within a job you can setup
your preferences in this screen. The profiles will be set automatically in the further input process
but you may still modify them if required.
The set preferences only apply to new positions of the current job. Select the item "Save as
Standard Settings" to use these preferences in future jobs. Through this you determine the set
preferences as standard preferences of the used system.
When you turn on structural analysis the mullions and transoms are checked for sufficient
moments of inertia (second moment of area). The check applies to all mullions and transoms
which are no frame or jamb elements.
For structural analysis please note also Explanation of determining statics, page 130.

13

ReynaPro

Grid Input

Now the program asks for the number of fields in width and height.
After you have determined the quantity of fields the element is already drawn.
Note:
This screen is not applicable for particular systems (e.g. Sliders, Skylights).
Tip:
If it is impossible to define the position to be entered due to slant frames and mullions select the
button "Free Input".
Tip:
There are some templates defined for a couple of systems by which you can quickly apply
frequently arising constructions (Button "From Element-Template").

14

ReynaPro

Set and Delete Mullions and Transoms

After you determined the number of fields in width and height the program asks for the total
width as well as the partial widths and for the total height as well as the partial heights. In order
to split the fields equally leave their status on "automatic". Fields which are calculated
automatically are labelled by "A". The advantage of an automatic allocation consists in the fact
that only automatic fields will be adjusted in case of later modifications (e.g. change of total
dimension).
If you want to determine a partial dimension either enter the absolute dimension or an equation
e.g. T/2 (T = total dimension). The result of this formula will be figured automatically and entered
into the corresponding field. Please note that this is a pure pocket calculator function. The
equation itself won't be saved after the value was figured.
Tip:
If you want to alter one field's dimension simply click on the corresponding dimension and the
program will jump automatically into the correct input field.
Note:
When using door and window systems the total dimensions refer to the distance from outer
edge of frame to outer edge of frame, for a door they refer to finish floor level (FFL). The partial
dimensions refer to outer edge of frame to centre line of mullion etc. In curtain wall
constructions it is also possible to select centre line to centre line as dimension reference by a
corresponding setting.
Tip:
You may swap between internal and external view anytime. For this press the button "I / O" in
the bottom left corner.

15

ReynaPro

Add / Delete Fields


After all dimensions were entered you may correct your inputs by adding or deleting fields
("Add Fields" and "Delete Fields") or by altering the entered dimensions using the buttons
"Total / Partial Width" or "Total / Partial Height".
Set / Delete Profiles
In order to delete an individual profile or to re-set it, right-click on the corresponding profile and
select "Delete Profile" or "Set Profile" in the popup menu. It is possible to delete or set
individual profiles by the button "Set / Delete Profiles" or to do the same for multiple profiles by
the mark functions.
Mark Areas
The following functions are available: Individual selection by mouse-click, multi-selection by Ctrl
and mouse-click and the possibility "area selection". For an area selection open a selection
box over the profiles to be marked by using the left mouse button. There the open direction is
decisive: A selection box from left to right marks only profiles which are fully enclosed by the
box, a selection box from right to left marks enclosed and intersected profiles.
Pitches
Element pitches are also performed in this screen. Simply click the buttons "Left Pitch" and
"Right Pitch" and enter the corresponding dimensions. You can either enter the displayed
dimension or the enumerated mullion or transom centre lines.
Add-On Profiles and Couplings
You can set add-on profiles and couplings here, too. For add-ons click the button "Add-On
Profiles" and select the profile and profile side where you want to place the add-on. By keeping
Ctrl pressed you are able to select multiple profiles/profile sides. An add-on never changes the
outer dimension of an element, it is always included in this outer dimension.
For a coupling click the corresponding button and afterwards select one or more (keep Ctrl
pressed) profiles you want to transform into coupled constructions. Then ReynaPro offers all
entered couplings of this system which you can apply by the corresponding button in the
explanation field. Now the centre line dimensions refer to the outer edges of the coupling

16

ReynaPro
profiles. Additionally the gap of the coupling (if applicable) is dimensioned, too. The outer
dimension of the element doesn't change.
It is also possible to add additional mullions and transoms to the construction. For this enter the
position of mullion from left and the position of transom from FFL.
Tip:
Don't run "Free Input" earlier, because this way you can already use the entered grid in your
CAD construction (See Free Input, page 34).

17

ReynaPro

Insertion Input

In this screen you determine the insertion types of the position.


In the explanation field you can find door symbols and in the assistant field window symbols
which are only offered depending on the possibilities of the selected system. If there is e.g. no
folding door in a system then the option isn't displayed. Solid and dashed lines in the symbols
show the open direction depending on the selected view (internal or external). A green frame
stands for a sash. Consider this when entering fixed sashes and glazing from inside/outside.
You can leave fields blank which include customer constructions or other constructions from
vendors by "Empty Window" and "Empty Door". Deleted fields are fully removed from the
construction (e.g. stepped constructions), but they can be replaced by another function anytime.
The currently selected field is red. After each insertion selection the program proceeds to the
next insertion field.
The following selection functions are available for insertions to be determined: Individual
selection by mouse-click, multi-selection by Ctrl and mouse-click and the possibility "area
selection". For an area selection open a selection box over the fields to be marked by using the
left mouse button. There the open direction is decisive: A selection box from left to right marks
only fields which are fully enclosed by the box, a selection box from right to left marks enclosed
and intersected fields.

In order to modify you can click the insertion field and alter the function anytime.

18

ReynaPro

After selecting insertions and setting profiles the program asks for different dimension
references if applicable: Since we entered a stepped construction in our example the program
still requires the information if the entered partial height refers to centre line, inner or outer edge
of mullion. You are able to switch between these possibilities by F2 or you can select one
directly by mouse-click.
Note:
A modification of the dimension reference evokes a change of the right-hand dimension chain
because the centre of mullion or the outer edge of frame is always dimensioned.

19

ReynaPro

In this screen it is possible to display section drawings. Right-click next to a transom or mullion.
A popup menu with various functions opens. Select the item "Set Section Line" and draw the
line over the area you want to have the section generated from.
You are also able to correct the input of all values in this window again. Simply hit the
corresponding button.
"Insertions"

You can change your entered insertions by this function


afterwards. Among other things it is possible to transform a
Deleted Field into another insertion (Glazing, Panel, Window).

"Frame", "Mullion", Here you are able to re-set the profiles. The program proceeds
profile per profile. The button "Pitched/Curved Profiles" is
"Transom",
only available if the construction includes the corresponding
"Pitched/Curved
profiles, e.g. when using Free Input (See Free Input, page 34)
"Set Partial Profile" Click on the partial profile to be altered and select the
corresponding profile from the profile list. As soon as you have
set the partial profile confirm by "Apply".
Specification of Corner Connections, T-Connections and X"Modify
Connections, if the horizontal or vertical profile shall pass or if a
Connections"
mitred connection shall be performed: Select the connection to
be altered either by mouse-click or by cursor control keys. F2
switches between the connection possibilities. The program
displays all options consecutively whereas the current one is
enlarged. There is also another setting alternative for pitched
elements, for this see Input of a Pitched Position, page 29.
Here you can determine if and how far mullions and frames are
"Extensions"
extended at top and bottom. To this the program asks
consecutively for each single extension. This item is primarily
used during the input of curtain walls. At door elements you can
also use the function "Bottom Configuration" to setup the
bottom extension.
Determine the position of a profile division here.
"Profile Division"
20

ReynaPro
The allocation of all profiles will be deleted and you are asked
to re-assign each single profile. This is mainly reasonable to
alter a construction depth or to change the insulator of a curtain
wall.
Rebate or glass dimensions are equalised. This function is only
"Equal Rebate
Dimension in Width" available for rectangular elements.
"Reset all Profiles"

You are able to adapt rebate and glass dimensions. Unless all
fields shall obtain the same dimension choose "Only selected
fields". Then you are asked to determine the fields to be
equalised.
"Equal Rebate
Dimension in
Height"
"Bottom
Configuration"

Rebate and glass heights can be equalised. The individual


options correspond with those of "Equal Rebate Dimension in
Width".
This item is only available at door elements and windows with
sills. Here you determine the type of bottom configuration and
the bottom extension of frame profiles. The bottom
configuration includes bottom rail terminations, bottom rail
alignments, thresholds and settings for the bottom gap.
During the selection process you can right-click the drawing of
the currently chosen bottom configuration and select one of the
display options of the popup menu: Display in CAD, Full Screen
Mode and Advanced View.
It is possible that only one particular bottom rail profile is
available. This one will be selected automatically.

"Wall Connection"

Here you are able to determine and, if required, to correct the


wall connection.

"Insertion Data"

Modify sash or leaf profiles, bottom rails, partial door width,


door midrail positions and handle heights. The program runs
through this screen automatically during an initial input (See
Insertion Data Input, page 22).

"Internal Rail
Setting"

Select this item in order to setup internal rails of doors and


windows (See Internal Rail Input, page 31). It is only available
if you entered the insertion data first.

"Door Frame
Design"

If you click "Door Frame Design" the door top and side lights
will be attached to the door.

"Uw-Value"

Here it is possible to enter missing Ug/Up-Values for the


applied glass and panel types.

"System Variants"

This item allows you to alter again the glazing bead variants
and subsystems.

Tip: If you want to use customised bottom configurations you can enter those in the database.
21

ReynaPro

Insertion Data Input

After completing the base element the program automatically requests the input of Insertion
Data. At a door you are asked for leaf profiles, bottom rails, handle height and midrails. For
complex constructions select the item "Internal Rail Setting" after having completed Insertion
Data.
At windows only the sash profile is requested. Additionally you have got to enter a partial width
at multi-part insertions. Meeting stile windows and pairs of doors require the input of the
meeting stile information first and then you are being asked for the other sashes or leaf profiles.
In parts you are able to setup this information already in the system preferences screen.
Note:
Door pairs always request the input of the master leaf's partial width, whereas meeting stile
windows ask for the partial width of the leaf to be opened first.

22

ReynaPro

Secondary Profiles and Items

Here you may add secondary, not automatically applied profiles, e.g. sill, shutter and wall
connection profiles. For this all database profiles are available. The list is narrowed down to
those profiles which are labelled as Secondary Profiles in the database. In order to input other
profiles either enter the profile number manually or tick the checkbox "Display with
Accessories" at the bottom of the profile list and select it.
You are able to create secondary profile macros which include e.g. all parts of wall connection.
Then this macros can be chosen from the list. The program either inserts the macro as a whole
or all included parts will be written separately in the upper list. Thus all individual items of the
macros may be deleted or altered later. To learn more about secondary profile macros see
Hardware macros/Supplementary profile macros, page 97.
At frequently used secondary profiles which are not listed you may activate the option
"Secondary Profile" in the database in order to display them in the future.
Only the profiles of the supplier whose system is currently selected will be displayed. In order to
access also other secondary profiles tick the checkbox "Display all suppliers" at the bottom of
your profile list.
It is possible to load secondary profiles from already entered positions by hitting "From another
Position", "From previous Position" or "From another Job".

23

ReynaPro

Glass Input

The program asks you field by field which glass to apply. Thereby the currently selected field is
displayed red. If you entered system preferences for glazing then the program allocates
automatically glass or panel to the fields .
After having decided for a filling the program displays a list of available thicknesses for this
filling type. Glass units require an additional information about possible special glass inside or
outside.
If the selected glass turns out inappropriate (e.g. dimensions too large, side ratio exceeded) you
may apply it anyway. However, the program asks in this case for the glass pane's price per area
or price per unit.
When using standard glass where no price is entered in the database (price on demand) you
will be asked for a price per area or price per unit, too. This price applies to all other panes of
this type in this position.
There are two possibilities to enter a glass which is not part of the database:
If you want to use the glass only once select the item "Manual Glass Input" from the list. Then
input the glass name and the price per area or unit.
If you want to use a glass multiple times in your current job you can create a project glass. This
applies also to other positions of the job. The price assigned to project glass may be altered in
the estimation data later.
Tip: You may apply a previously entered glass including all assigned properties by "Copy from
Previous Field".
Tip: You are able to copy fillings, too. Right-click the filling you intend to copy and select "Copy
Filling". Then paste it into the corresponding field by right-click and "Paste Filling".
Note: Glass prices entered in the database can be checked and modified over "User
Database" / "Glass Units" or "Standard Glass" (See Insu-Glass, page 100 or Standard
glass, page 99).
24

ReynaPro

Insertion Hardware

It is possible to allocate fittings in ReynaPro by the hardware manager.


All hardware items are selected step by step.
During the input ReynaPro checks all possible hardware combinations which belong to the
selected item. Only reasonable entries are displayed to be selected by the user.
In order to assign hardware items just click on the item you want to determine in the right input
window.
If you want to see all currently applied fittings (apart from additional hardware) at a glace click
the button "Part List" in the top right corner.
Hardware macros of older ReynaPro versions may still be used. For this use the bottom area of
the insertion hardware screen.

25

ReynaPro

Complete Position

In the fabrication and installation hours screen the program asks for quantities, labour hours,
colours and other parameters of the position.
Alternative positions are labelled by entering "0" at "Quantity".
When you tick the option "Treatment for Locking Bars" then the inside colour of the insertion
will be applied to the locking bars. If the colour is a coating then "E6/EV1" (anodised) will be
used.
If you select "Crimp" for corner cleats although there is no crimpable cleat available for the
profiles then the program applies automatically the pinned corner cleat ("Nail").
Finally the program figures the part list whereby the position input is completed.
NB:
If you enter values in the fields "Time Fabrication", "Time Installation" and "Time
Dismantling" ReynaPro generates a corresponding description in the quotation, e.g.
"Including Dismantling, Installation and Sealing to Structure...".
Tip:
The program is able to suggest fabrication and installation hours. For this you have to input your
typical labour effort in User Database/Labour Hours once ( Labour Hours, page 83). Then tick
the option "Accept Suggestion" in the "Fabrication and Installation Hours" screen.
Tip:
It is possible to attach a comment to a position. For this click into the comment field.

26

ReynaPro

Positions Selection / Job Modification

After completing a position input you will automatically return to this menu.
In this menu you can find all already entered positions including quantity, colour, profile system
and position drawing.
In order to modify an existing position select the designated position and click the item "Edit or
Copy existing Positions".
The following window opens:

You will get a selection of different modification possibilities and you are able to alter the whole
position or only particular items.
When you click the button "Modify Position" the whole position will be opened for
modifications. In this case the program proceeds step by step through all screens of the
element input. If you don' t want to alter anything in a screen hit "Enter" or click the button
"Next".

27

ReynaPro
If you select the item "Copy" ReynaPro will ask for the position number of the new position.
Then the new position will be placed at the bottom of the list. You can alter the new position
directly in order to perform e.g. dimension changes.
Positions can also be deleted completely by clicking the button "Delete".
If you want to apply a different system to the position select the item "Swap System".
It is possible to edit a position's name, quantity and colour, too.
Via "Modify Glazing" you reach the Glass Input screen directly.
Furthermore you may alter the following items: secondary profiles, hardware, labour hours, uvalues and sealings.
When all positions are entered select the item "Main Menu" at the bottom of the screen or
simply hit "Esc". You can also modify this job later by re-selecting "Input of Elements" on the
Main Menu.

28

ReynaPro

Input of a Pitched Position


After you have entered how the fields are separated (2 widths, 1 height in this example) and the
field measurements (total width 2000 mm, part width 1000 mm, total height 1000 mm), click on
the button "Left pitch".
ReynaPro first asks for the measurements or the transoms where the pitch begins (above). The
transoms are numbered here.

If you enter 0 , 1 or 2 ,ReynaPro recognizes that you would like to choose the corresponding
transom, and every other value will be interpreted as a measurement. You can also enter for
example 500 (for 500 mm).
In this example however you enter 1, to enable the pitch to begin at the middle transom.
Next the program asks you for the lateral height up to the start of the pitch. Here the
measurements are requested at the lower edge of the elements. With 0 you can choose the
lower lock/frame. But for this example, please enter the measurement 300.
Note:
To delete a pitch again, choose "Left pitch" or "Right pitch" and press

F2 .

You can now change to the next menu and populate the fields with insertions.
Once you have populated all the insertions and all the profiles as in the previous position,
choose the item in the right-hand column "Change connections".
Here you can choose between mitred and adjoining for the corner connections. For cross joints
you can choose which profile goes through and which adjoins. In pitched corners you can move
a running profile. Move the red cross using the arrow keys or the mouse on to the connection to
be changed.
You can change the join with

ReynaPro

Choose the pitched edge as in the illustration. Use


for placing the mullion:

F2

to switch between the three possibilities

1. The outside view of the mullion runs into the corner so that the join is 90 and the outside
view does not have to be latched.
2. The inside view of the mullion runs into the corner so that the join is 90 and the outside view
does have to be latched.
3. The axis of the mullion rises to the top.
4. The inside view of the mullion runs into the corner so that the join of the mullion matches the
angle of the pitched frame, and the outside view must therefore be latched.
5. The outside view of the mullion runs into the corner so that the join of the mullion matches the
angle of the pitched frame, and the outside view must therefore not be latched.
ReynaPro moves the mullion, and the corner measurement remains unchanged.
When ready, click on "OK".
The next actions for this position are the same as those for positions described earlier.
Note:
For lateral connections there is the same procedure as for the corners in the frames above. One
condition here is that when entering the pitch, a lock number has been entered and not a fixed
measurement.
Note:
To see other details in the drawing more closely, you can enlarge it using + in the area of the
mouse position. With - you make the area smaller, and with x you return to the normal view.

Internal Rail Input


After inputting the base elements and the insertion data, click on the button transoms &
mullions.

You now have various possibilities for entering transoms & mullions.
You can click on "Add locks" to add locks.
In this dialog, enter the number of locks desired and click on "Same glass measurements" or
"Free measurement input", depending on whether you want equal division of glass or free
division.

If you have not set any preferences for the transoms & mullions profile and the locks profile, the
program will ask you for the profile number.
The function "Add transoms & mullions" works just like "Add locks".
In order to enter a lock in the door which has the same axis as the lock in the right-hand side,
click on "Adapt profile". You can now click the lock into the side part using the mouse. As in
this case the building depths between the door wing and the side part agree, the profile height
and profile number will be adopted. Otherwise only the profile height would be adopted, and the
profile number would be requested.
You enter a pitched mullion using "Add free mullion": Using the mouse, you can choose every
corner point and every point on the frame of the chosen insertion. If you have chosen a point on
the frame, the program displays the measurement for correction. ReynaPro now asks you if you
31

ReynaPro
would like to set the course of the mullion at a fixed angle or at an endpoint to be chosen. The
choice of endpoint ensues like the choice of starting point.
Transoms & mullions can only be entered from side to side of the insertion. If a transom should
only run to another transom, it must first be completely entered and then shortened using
"Delete part profile".
You can also use these possibilities in combination. In the following example, the first and the
third possibilities are used.

To enter the transoms & mullions, proceed as follows:


Choose "add free mullion" and click with the mouse on the upper left edge of the door.
The program now asks you if you want to enter the ending point of the mullion by angle or by an
ending point.

Choose "angle" and enter the desired angle into the next dialog field.

(In this example please enter 145.)


Next, the program asks where the mullion should run to in the upper edge.
On the right-hand side of the screen, you can see the
corresponding possibilities. The dashed lines represent the
outside view of the profile. This choice means that the pitched
mullion when seen from outside with the upper edge runs
directly into the corner of the wing profile.
After you have chosen the profile number, you can continue with the next mullion. Choose add
free mullion As a starting point, click on the point where the first mullion touches the wing
32

ReynaPro
profile. Again choose the possibility to include the mullion above the angle, and enter an angle
of 35.
After entering the profile number, answer the question about the course of the mullion by
clicking on the icon illustrated here:

Choose "add mullion" To the question about the number of mullions, answer "1" and choose
the button "Equal glass measurements".

After entering the profile number, choose the item "delete part profile" and click on the profile
piece to be removed.
If you now click on "Next" at the lower edge of the screen, the program returns to the previous
menu and shows also the glass mouldings etc.

Free Input
You can start a "Free Input" by entering and dimensioning, as in a normal input, the basic grid,
and then using the button "Free Input". In this case, ReynaPro takes over the grid (see the
example below).
If you use the button "Free Input" without having defined the element grid in advance, "Free
Input" starts with an empty screen. In this case you can construct it as you wish.

Using the CAD function, you can change and enlarge the grid. The CAD function is described
starting at CAD, page 105.

When the drawing is ready, choose the function "Next" to get to the next menu.
For a problem-free construction it is vital that all the line features are closed. ReynaPro can deal
with discrepancies up to a certain point, but large discrepancies will result in ReynaPro reporting
an error and not continuing to the next menu.
Note:
Only yellow / black lines are populated with profiles. Inputs with other colours are left untouched
on the drawing. This feature can be used for example for dimensions or comments.
Note:
As soon as a position becomes a "Free input", it is no longer possible to return to the grid
input. This means that measurement changes etc must be done in the line drawing.
The only way to return to the grid input is to delete the whole drawing and click on "back".
ReynaPro recognizes the lines and populates them with profiles. You can now input insertions
and change the profile population. The procedure from here on is exactly the same as was
described in previous positions. In addition there is the button "pitched mullions".

You can change insertions already input using "Edit insertion".


You enter windows and doors using the buttons "Window insertion" and "Door insertion".
When you click on the button, the program jumps automatically to the input of the insertion
position. You can enter the insertion position as you are already familiar with from the simple
window and door positions.
Via the button "Panel/fixed field row" or "Panel/fixed field column" you can populate a
whole row or column with panel fields with just a single click.
You can save time inputting similar insertions by entering the first insertion and then choosing
"Copy insertion" to place it in the corresponding fields. Doing this, you can still establish the
direction of opening of the insertion.

Mullion Divisions
To separate mullion profiles, choose the button "Mullion Divisions". The program asks you the
following questions:

If you choose "Select new separation for all mullions" the program will ask you for the
separation measurement for the inside and outside profiles. The measurement that you have
entered for the inside profile will be used for the mullion profile and if necessary on the insulator,
the measurement for the outside profile on the press profile and the cover.
For the item "Edit mullion divisions by each" you can choose another separation
measurement for each individual profile.
For every separation you can choose whether the "air" matches the system settings, ("System
air") or are entered freely. In free input of the distance of the mullion profile, no accessories will
be calculated for the transom join.
Note:
If you click on "next" in order to get to the next program menu, and some of the profiles are
longer than the longest measuring rod, the program will automatically ask you if you want to
undertake a mullion separation.

The intersection plan can be dimensioned in a variety of ways. Under "Type of dimensions"
you choose the appearance of the dimensions, and under "Dimensions of intersections", you
choose what is to be dimensioned.
"Position for vertical intersection": A vertical intersection can be printed out on the right-hand
or the left-hand side of the position plan.
"Size of dimension text" Here you enter the character size of the dimension.
If you switch on "Position information", the position number, the number and view
(inside/outside) of the position above the position view are displayed.
"Name intersections" means that designations on the intersections such as A-A, B-B etc will
be entered.

specified time, quick help is displayed at the cross hairs. If you do not need this function, enter 0
for the time.
"Retain settings for next time" If this button is not selected, and you start a new drawing,
CAD will restore all the standard settings. If switched on, the step type, line type, drawing colour
etc are retained.

Dimensioning

"Colour preferences for dimensioning". If a colour is chosen here, the dimensions will always
be drawn in these colours; else in the current drawing colour.
"Font for dimensioning". Here you can choose between the three CAD fonts.
"Number of decimal places for dimensioning" is entered here. You can also change the
dimensioning text during the input of dimensions.
"Dimensioning with automatic hop". While this button is on, dimensions hop automatically to
the next point.
With the following details you design the appearance of the various dimensioning forms.
"Factor for outside line length", "Length of outside measurement line", "Factor for circle
radius for measurement number", "Factor for pitch length for measurement number",
"Factor for Arrow length", "Factor for tolerance height".
"Distance to reference edge". If you enter a value here, the dimensioning thresholds start with
a corresponding distance to the chosen point.
Drawing administration

If "History dependent on loading, adding or saving" is switched on, the program keeps track
of the latest directory for each function.
During loading, adding etc, the drawings will be shown in a small window during the selection. If
the button "Drawings displayed in colour" is switched off, the drawings will be displayed in
black on light grey.

123

ReynaPro
"Dimensioning retained while adding". Profile drawings are stored partly dimensioned. If
such drawings are added, it is generally better not to add the dimensions, as they disrupt the
build-up of an intersection. This function only affects drawings loaded from the sub-directory
"System drawings".
Technical Preferences

If a multi-line text is entered, the "Factor row-distance for text input" defines the distance
between two text lines.
"Preferences for scale selection". Scales suggested in CAD are taken from this list.
Lines of the same colour crossing or adjoining each other will be combined into one line by the
function "OPTI". The "Block length for Optimisation" defines the size of the surrounding area
in which the system searches for overlapping lines.
"CAD base resolution" Here you define the number of decimal places that CAD works with.
1/10 = 1 decimal place, 1/100 = 2 decimal places etc.
"Radius of the corner when rounding". The function "Radius of edges while rounding"
uses this value as the preference for the radius.

What is "Relative Positioning"?


In "Add", "Grab" etc the insertion point is automatically located bottom left at the drawing to be
inserted. Use the key P to change the relative positioning, in other words the insertion point.
Now you only see the drawing to be inserted on-screen. Move the mouse to the point you want
to use as the insertion point and press the left mouse key. The program jumps back to the
original drawing and holds the drawing to be inserted at the new insertion point at the cross
hairs.
How does Drawing Administration work?

If you load, save or add drawings, ReynaPro opens the menu for Drawing Administration.
You can change to other sub-directories by clicking on the sub-directory. You can create a new
.
sub-directory by clicking on
If you want to rename a drawing or a sub-directory, click with the right mouse key on the input
and choose "Rename". The program now asks you for a new name for the chosen input.
Drawing Administration allows you access to your object directories For this, click on the button
"Objects". In the file window, you will now see all the objects stored in your program. To return
to the CAD database, click on the button "Drawings".
Note:
You cannot store any drawings in the sub-directory "System drawings". Only drawings from
the profile system's producer are stored in "System drawings".

Printing / Plotting Menu - Printing out from Intersections and CAD

Before you switch in the Printing and Plotting menu, select the printer and the set of preferences
to be used.
The program "binds" to that printer and to the most recent set of preferences, so that you can
make a once-off selection for different output devices and then be offered automatically the
correct set of preferences.
You can also change both the output device and the set of preferences in the following menu.
For how to set up and administer sets of preferences, read Address database, page 72.
In the Printing and Plotting Menu you position the print-out created in Intersections or in CAD on
paper.
You can grab individual elements in the drawing with the mouse and shift them around on the
paper.
With "Paper format" you select the required paper size. Many printers do not provide a choice,
as they only work with the DIN A4 Format.
The "Scale" in printing relates to Intersections on the profile drawings. The scale of the position
plans is 1/10 the scale of the profile drawings. In the example above, the profile scale is 1:2, the
position scale is 1:20.
"Display frames": A frame is drawn around the page.
"Choose document field": With this button you can choose a document field. If the document
field is to have "variable fields", you can change its contents with the button "Select presets".
The following menu appears:
For how to create and amend the document field, read Document Fields, page 128.
The drawing is shifted to the sheet. Instead of using this button, you can also click on the
drawing and then shift the various elements separately.
The drawing is rotated 90 to the left.

The drawing is rotated 90 to the right.


The drawing will be shifted to the middle of the sheet.
With "Choose Preferences" you define the set of preferences to be used.
"Set preferences" enables you to change the settings made in Preferences. Read Printing /
Plotting Preferences on Address database, page 72.
"Form feed": An empty page is printed. This function is intended for printers with continuous
paper.
With these buttons you set the number of copies. The currently selected number is
shown under these buttons.
Once you have done all the settings, start the printing or plotting with "Start print-out".

Document Fields
A document field is a CAD drawing that must be in the directory "Document Fields" with a
scale of 1:1. During Document Field selection, the Printing / Plotting Menu automatically
displays all the drawings found in the directory.
A document field can contain various fields which can be written to either automatically or
manually. A Field is simply a piece of text that starts with the characters "&&".
The field designation is automatically replaced during printing. The typeface and size are
transferred.

Explanation of determining static


In the event of a load, a bearer resting freely on two supports is assumed with a trapezium load.
The formula for determining the required moment of inertia is:
Jx erf. =

w x a(5 x l2 - 4 x a2) x (5 x l2 - 4 x a2) (cm4)


1920 x E x fzul.

Meanings:
Jx erf.

Required moment of inertia

in cm4

Wind load

in kN/cm2

fzul.

Permitted rod sagging

in cm

Elasticity modulus of bar material

in kN/cm2

Half width of load surface

in cm

Rod length

in cm

Note:
Values not given are to be requested from the profile manufacturer and the glass
industry. The values we have given are not binding and also need to be confirmed by the
profile and glass manufacturer.
Our program makes it possible to determine the moment of inertia for all materials. By entering
the relevant E-modulus, the wind load and the permissible sagging as well as a part of the total
rod and length (e.g. 1 /300) and as well as the boundary in cm (e.g. 0.8), every standard and
precondition can be fulfilled.
Possible values:
Elasticity modulus:

Aluminium: 70.000 N/mm2


Steel: 210.000 N/mm2

Wind load:

Building height up to 8 m: 0,50 kN/m2


Building height up to 20 m: 0,80 kN/m2
Building height up to 100 m: 1,10 kN/m2
Building height over 100 m: 1,30 kN/m2
tower-like buildings: Value in kN/m2 x 1,34

Permissible sagging:

Additional optimisation
Additional optimisation creates an object like the Input of elements. At the start of Additional
optimisation you reach the address menu. Here you must at least enter the object name under
which you want to find this object later on.
You will find a description of the Address Menu in the description of the Input of elements from
Job Data Input, page 10.

Next ReynaPro asks you for the profile from which the lengths are to be cut. Here you can
choose any of the profiles held in ReynaPro. If you want to optimise a profile not yet stored,
simply give the designation or profile number from the keyboard. In this case you must enter the
details "Profile length", "Part bar length", "Beginning & end deduction", "Saw deduction"
and "Usable remaining profile".
After you have chosen the profile, you can enter the individual lengths in the list on the right. For
this, you must enter, for every profile, the number, length, the left and right cut and if necessary
the position number. If you will want to skip inputting cuts and position numbers, click on the
button "Enter cut and position number automatically". The cut will now be populated with I-I
(90-90).
To include another profile number, click on the left-hand list with the profile numbers and
confirm with the "Ins" key.
To start the optimisation, switch back to the Front Menu and choose the button "Optimisation".
