Details of CADS RC3D for Revit
The purpose of CADS RC3D is to simplify the placement, annotation and bar marking of reinforcing steel for all types of RC structures. CADS RC expands the robust reinforcement modelling strength of Revit.
By employing the 3D modelling functionality of Revit efficiently, CADS RC3D facilitates the rebar being splitted into particle groups (bar ranges). Besides, bar marks are formed and managed, detailed reinforcement (shop) drawings are produced with the single click of mouse.
Bar bending schedules are generated automatically and material lists are exported to external production software file formats like BVBs, aSa, Soulé and Excel.
With it’s user-friendly functionality, it is possible to produce 2D detailed reinforcement (shop) drawings from Revit models.
Unique annotation functions offer ticking & tagging of bar ends in different user-defined styles.
Supplementary annotation functions are generated to detail tapered ranges and mark rebar ends.
Modelled rebar is divided into physical zones inside each element of the structure.
Reinforcing bars are allotted to exact layers and accordingly viewed more smoothly.
Advanced editing functions facilitate rebar to be duplicated from one structure to another.
Various reinforcing bars are attached together to develop new, complicated bar shapes.
Trimming reinforcement is indicated and added around openings in the structure compliant with user’s preferences.
Rebar is trimmed and expanded to openings, detail or model lines.
Superior bar placement functions facilitates arranging new bars equivalent to other reinforcement already in the structure.
Generates Bar Bending Schedules (BBS) that adheres to UK, US and other country standards.
Reinforcement is ‘called off’ in the by element ‘release’ or ‘drawing sheet’ and then managed consequently.
The BBS and ‘bar lists’ are provided onto drawing sheets or printed with industry standard reporting templates
BBS and bar list templates can be easily tailored to abide by company standards.
