Save time by automatically generating reinforcement in Revit using the free unlimited trial of CADS' Extension Tools for a range of standard concrete structures. Select the structural concrete elements to be reinforced, launch the appropriate tool or select the automatic generation tool. Specify the parameters to be used when reinforcing the structure. Supported concrete elements include: beams, columns, continuous footings, parapets, pile caps, concrete piles, retaining walls, slab corners, slab openings, spread footings, wall corners and walls.
The Rebar Extensions were originally developed by Autodesk but due to their close partnership with CADS they have asked us to develop and maintain the extensions. These extensions work with CADS RC3D for Revit which is an Autodesk® Revit® extension designed to enhance the placement, annotation and bar marking of reinforcing steel in all kinds of RC structures. CADS RC3D takes the 3D modelling functionality of Revit to the next level allowing rebar to be divided up into particle groups (bar ranges), bar marks to be created and managed, detailed reinforcement (shop) drawings to be created with a single click! Bar bending schedules are automatically created and material lists exported to external production software file formats such as BVBs, aSa, Soulé and Excel.
CADS Markup also comes with CADS RC3D and allows structural engineers to annotate a Revit model with reinforcement information to convey the design intent to reinforcement detailers effectively avoiding the process of manually marking reinforcement regions on printed general arrangement drawings.
