ReadSectionCDB in Sofistik Grasshopper Component

According to Read Section CDB
it has an output: Variables
its Description is Section variables found.

I define the cross section in teddy, and do use variables like below

LET#Bt 8500
LET#Tt 240
LET#Bb 4500
LET#Tb 250

But ReadSectionCBD couldn’t output any Variables


The command “Read Section CDB” returns only variables of a cross section.
In order to understand the command, you need to know, that SOFiSTiK uses different sets of variables with different scopes:
1.STO# - global variable: is saved within the database and can be used in different programs
2. LET# - local variable: only valuable within the current program
3. TVAR - local variable: only usable within the current cross section

Further information can be found within the AQUA manual.

SSD / TEDDY > Help > User Manuals > All Manuals… > aqua > 3.51 TVAR - Template Variables

The result for the command “Read Section CDB” is, that you have only access on the TVAR variables.
