    In this post of the Structural Precast series I would like to touch upon the topic of segmentation of precast walls. Segmentation of precast walls can be done automatically or manually. Before we run the automatic segmentation we should check and adjust the Configuration Settings. The Configuration settings can be imported or exported via XML […]

    This article is the continuation of a conversation that I started with the blog post depicting the value of BIM for Concrete and continued with from 2D to 3D with rebar detailing. If you’ll remember, I’ve described what I see as four main benefits for a BIM-centric approach to concrete: Combines the versatility of 2D […]

    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, […]

    Before we move into the Dynamo part let me quickly highlight rebar numbering and partitioning in Revit. In Revit, numbering allows identical reinforcement elements to be matched for schedules and tags. Partitioning in Revit gives you the ability to define a common parameter for reinforcing elements within a certain construction sequence. Rebar elements are automatically […]

    Several years ago, Lawton Welding Co. Ltd., a miscellaneous metals and small structural steel company based in Topsfield, Massachusetts, took on a project detailing and fabricating the steelwork for an old stone church that was being renovated and repurposed. The project was fraught with rework orders — largely due to the irregularities of the stone […]

    A reinforcement drawing shows the positions of all reinforcing elements in a particular structure or a structural element. There are numerous ways of drafting concrete shop drawings, and drafting styles vary between countries or even between design companies. Rebar in Revit comes with properties that can be read by predefined tags (families) created specifically to […]

    Last year I published a blog post contemplating the value of BIM for Concrete, and discussing how the next generation of BIM tools for reinforced concrete are helping our customers in four main ways. I described these BIM-centric concrete benefits as: Combines the versatility of 2D documentation with the higher level of fidelity and accuracy […]

  • Concrete Detailing
    Revit allows structural engineers to create their models and documentation in an advanced BIM environment. By using Revit, structural designers and engineers can produce accurate design intent models and give engineers and detailers the information they need to develop models to a higher level of fidelity for Fabrication and Installation purposes. Dynamo for Revit is […]
