Reinforced concrete detailing software and automatic bar bending schedules.

Easy-to-use app for immediate productivity.

AutoRebar is an app that provides Autodesk® AutoCAD® (and all vertical products) with an extra toolbar with specific objects for rebar detailing of reinforced concrete structures. With AutoRebar you can now easily produce high quality drawings quickly by automating the repetitive tasks previously involved in rebar detailing. You can now focus on the conceptual part of the design rather than deal with time-consuming traditional CAD editing work.

There are four types of dynamic objects: Rebars, Marks, Call-outs and the BBS.

The Rebar objects can be created and stretched like polylines and the bar size quickly edited with a double click. Since all AutoRebar entities are graphically connected, the linked Marks and Call-outs update automatically.

The user can add a new Mark by selecting the Rebar to be linked, and double click it to edit data such as the bar grouping criteria, the bar spacing and the size of the range. Alternatively, normal AutoCAD dimensions can be linked to the Mark and used to specify the range of a bundle of bars in the concrete structure: AutoRebar calculates the total number of bars in that range. The great thing is, whenever you modify the concrete shape and stretch the dimension, the total number of bars updates immediately.

The Bar Bending Schedule can be either inserted in the drawing or exported to Excel with a simple click. Meanwhile, the EXPLODESEL and EXPLODEALL commands explode the AutoRebar objects into standard AutoCAD entities. This can be useful to deliver your drawing to other users who want to open and edit the.dwg file without having to install AutoRebar on their computers.

About This Version

Version 2.0, 7/17/2019
- Extended user interface with the new AutoRebar toll palette for maximum productivity: insert diameter, spacing and mark data in the tool palette, then draw multiple objects with the same data. Common AutoRebar buttons are now accessible from the palette even when the AutoRebar tab is not visible. The new palette is optional: the user can close the palette and access all the commands from the ribbon tab like in previous releases. - AutoRebar options are now stored in the drawing, not globally: each drawing can have its own set of settings such as units, digits and drawing preferences. - AutoCAD 2013 -> 2020 compatibility.

  • Useful app for Structural engineers.
    Hristian Revenski | July 23, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Some very useful application for structural engineers. The benefit to use app like this instead only pure AutoCAD objects can be feld immediately after first minutes of work. I started to work with it before 2 months and soon will make my first middle size building. 

  • Good App
    ionut negreanu | August 02, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    The app is helping a lot. You need to spent some time in order to learn what you can do with it, but once you do that, you will find that it really helps save a lot of time with the drawings. It may cause some Autocad instability but the owner of the app was quick to reply and give a solution.

  • Think twice
    Horacio Gabriel Beiserman | October 01, 2017

    For those who do not have a proper lisp may be useful. The ods are that it does not add stability to AutoCad, has to be exploded, does not allow different rebar list in the same drawing. My solution was to make the rebar drawing with a formwork external reference, then explode and use the exploded file for plot. All the proscess was heavy and time waisting, and also lead to mistakes..

  • AutoRebar
    Abbes Belhoussine | September 05, 2017

    Programme très utile pour dessiner en Génie Civil et Construction. Précision extrême et simplicité d'usage phénoménale.

  • Great tool
