    Back in September, we shared that Autodesk technology partner Symetri would deliver the reinforcement extension capabilities within Revit Extensions as part of their Naviate Rebar Extension. They have now released this functionality. We are excited to have this agreement in place with Symetri to improve the capabilities of Revit for BIM-based reinforcement detailing. FAQ Price: Naviate Rebar Extension […]

    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 […]

    A new type of Rebar can be modeled in Revit 2018.1, by working in 3D views and selecting the structural element faces to which the rebars are aligned. Free Form Rebars can have any geometry, either planar or 3D, and can be used for modelling and detailing of reinforcement in complex 3D structural elements. Rebars […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    The longitudinal reinforcement bars in columns can be tied together with separate smaller diameter transverse bars along the column height or they can be spirally-reinforced. Spirally-reinforced columns they are ones in which the longitudinal bars are arranged in a circle surrounded by a closely spaced continuous spiral. Advantages to using spirally reinforced columns There are […]

    The use of linear precast elements generally means placing the connecting faces at the beam-column junctions. The beams can be seated on corbels at the columns, for ease of construction and to aid the shear transfer from the beam to the column. The beam-column joints accomplished in this way are hinged. Compared with a beam […]
