New Structural Content in Revit 2018.2

Concrete Detailing

New Precast Content

New Precast families for beams, columns, slabs, and foundations are now available.

Revit users can choose between various types of I-shape, T-shape, trapezoidal and many other beam cross sections. Columns having different corbels configurations and top supporting conditions for beams have been created. TT slabs and isolated foundations, both block and sleeve, are also part of the new Precast content.

The extended range of parameters that control their geometry allow for faster and more precise modelling of Precast concrete structures.

The German version of the families is based on FachvereinigungDeutscherBetonfertigteilbau specifications.

The content is localized in English and German and can be downloaded from the Autodesk Knowledge Network.

This new content allows users faster and more precise modelling of Precast concrete structures.

Rebar Content Update for France and Germany

New French and German rebar shapes have been added to the Library, to enhance rebar modelling.

Among the French rebar shapes, we have also included the ones according to the older French code NF P 02 016:1993, which many French customers use throughout their projects.

The German library has been too updated with three shapes, again, to offer a complete range of rebar shapes used in this region.

The new content can be downloaded from the Autodesk Knowledge Network.

This provides enhanced rebar modelling to support better local standards.
