Defined the geometry of RC elements. Can be used to create new ranges of Types in the same Revit® Family.

Edit Rebar

Displays the reinforcement result obtained after the design process, comparing real reinforcement against required/theoretical

Cut Openings in Area

Cuts an area reinforcement to the edges of an opening already created in the planar element

Cut Openings in Rebar Set

Cuts a rebar set to the edges of an opening already created in an element


Imports a .GTCX file for the selected element (applied using BIM Designers in standalone mode - to update the project with a single element redesigned by the engineer - also imports reinforcement updating the project model)

Reinforcement Diameters

Defines the reinforcement diameters for the considered project

Import Analysis Results

Configures the internal forces import method

Transversal Distribution

Soil Database

Displays the available soils database


Exports the selected element in .GTCX format (applied using BIM Designers in standalone mode - to send a single element to the engineer to be redesigned)


Performs structural analysis of the selected element or project and generates the designed 3D rebar


Defines the code parameters of RC members for concrete design

Generate Report

Generates a PDF design report of the selected structural element, based on the specified design code Additional options include: Generates a DOC design report Generates a preview of the design report Access the report designer to create or customize design report templates

Generate Drawings

Generates elevations and section views with tags, annotations and dimensions and places them on a sheet

Design Status

Displays the calculation status of structural elements

Rebar Visibility

Show reinforcement bars unobscured and/or as solid in 3D views


Displays structural analysis results graphically showing stresses, interaction curves, bearing capacity etc based on the selected element type

Footing or Column

Creates a design group from selected footings or columns

MultiSpan Beam

Creates a multispan beam from selected elements

Wall or Shear Wall

Creates a wall group from selected elements.


Import or Export *.GTCX file format for all the selected elements.

Fabrics List

Allows the user to pick the type of fabric that will be used

Wall Constructive Dispositions

Performs a preliminary sizing for wall geometry and reinforcement to minimal constructive dispositions.

Bar Schedule

Easily create a Revit Rebar Schedule for any reinforced structural element

Preview Report

The report is displayed in the ReportViewer tool, which allows printing and print previewing, as well as exporting to Excel, Word and PDF formats.

Report Designer

Creates a new report template for a considered member or customizes an existing one

Reinforcement Solutions

Defines the reinforcing method (multilayer or strips) and the corresponding reinforcement parameters (diameters, spacings, types and ranges).

Reinforcement Area

Defines the minimum reinforcement area for slabs

Bottom Reinforcement

Category for editing bottom reinforcement

Edit in Revit 3D View

Allows interactive editing of the bottom/top slab reinforcement

Edit in Window

Allows interactive editing of the bottom/top slab reinforcement

Reinforcement Zones

Surface bottom/top reinforcement can be edited using the grid display of the reinforcement data

Generate Reinforcement

Generates the multilayer reinforcement solution based on the selected assumptions

Bottom Diagrams

Category for bottom diagrams

Top Diagrams

Category for top diagrams


Show diagrams for bottom/top reinforcement


Hide diagrams for bottom/top reinforcement

Diagrams Settings

Define settings for reinforcement diagrams

Rebar Cage

Save reinforcement cage as a template and reuse it

Split Rebar

Used to split the Rebar

Split at Lines

Used to split the rebar at a drawn line

Rebar Set

Commands to manage rebar sets

Explode Rebar Set

Divides rebar set to individual rebars

Split Rebar Set

Splits a rebar set at the desired location into 2 separate rebar sets

Isolate Rebar set

Isolates selected bar from rebar set

Unite Rebar sets

Unites selected rebar sets

Rebar in Element

Manages the rebar cages in elements

Copy Rebar

Copies rebar structure from one object containing rebar to other

Delete Rebar

Deletes rebar structure from an object containing rebar


Adjust the created reinforcement to the shape and particularities of the host element

Assign to Sheet

Prompts a selection of reinforcement which will be assigned to selected sheet. If no reinforcement is selected, then all reinforcement visible in view will be assigned

Set Rebar Number

Automatic numbering of reinforcement

Renumber Rebar

Allows to renumber reinforcement per sheet (affect rebars with assigned sheets by AssignToSheet command) or per project. Always renumbering the default (unassigned) reinforcement

Browse Reinforcement

Browses through reinforcement marks and highlights all corresponding instances in the view

Selects by Rebar Number
