Rebar detailing software and automatic bar bending schedules.
Easy-to-use interface for immediate productivity.
AutoRebar 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 quickly produce high-quality drawings by automating the repetitive tasks previously involved in rebar detailing with plain AutoCAD. You can now focus on the conceptual part of the design rather than having to deal with time-consuming CAD editing work.
There are four types of dynamic objects: Rebars, Marks, Call-outs and the Bar Bending Schedule.
Rebar objects can be created and stretched like polylines and the bar size is quickly edited with a double click. Since all AutoRebar entities are graphically connected, a modification to one or more Rebars causes all the linked objects to 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 on the fly.
The Bar Bending Schedule can be either inserted in the drawing or exported to Excel with a simple click, while the EXPLODESEL and EXPLODEALL command explodes the AutoRebar objects into standard AutoCAD entities. This can be useful to deliver your drawing to other users who want to open and edit your drawing without having to install AutoRebar on their computers.
The installer is compatible with AutoCAD 2013 or newer (including all vertical products).
