Demonstration of new freeform rebar tool in Revit 2018.1
This exclusive revit video tutorial provides the demonstration of new freeform rebar tool that is accessible in Revit 2018.1
This latest tool facilitates the users to include straight bars (Shape Code 00) which are based on complicated surfaces. The bars will produced a complicated shape but stay straight for fabrication instructions.
The Freeform Reinforcement tool is applied in a 3D view by initially choosing the host face. This tool applies the Select Multiple option. With the help of space bar, validate the selection. Then, choose the starting surface and then the ending surface and lastly press enter to set the bar.
This tool is mostly suitable while going to model complicated Architecture and Civil structures like bridges and tunnels. Each bar should have been scheduled for a precise length.
Free Form Rebar can contain any geometry in the form of planar or 3D, and can be utilized for modeling and detailing of reinforcement in complicated 3D structural elements.
Rebars are generated at the cover distance out of the intersection of the references which the Revit user chooses. One reference is made with one or more structural element faces.
The Surface Distribution rebar type comprises of bars that change among the Start Surface and the End Surface and are circulated along the Host Surface.
Free Form Rebar belongs to the Structural Rebar category, and contain all the properties related to it. Free form Rebar can be formed as single bars or rebar sets, rebar quantity for each instance of a Free Form Rebar can be modified easily.
Then the rebar constraints can be controlled with in canvas tools in 3D views to organize improved and perfect rebar placement.
It is possible to utilize adjustable numbering settings and generate perfect shop drawings with schedules that demonstrate varying lengths in Free Form Rebar sets to make the fabrication better.
