On every type of project, the adoption of a transparent and easy-to-apply Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow is the key to success. This also helps reduce the risk of errors and it provides huge productivity ratio improvements while making the design and engineering processes more efficient. To reach this objective, the engineer and the technicians, using Revit Structure software, need tools capable of automating 3D rebar generation (including semi-automated detailed drawings and schedules), but with the ability to make design-driven decisions for the reinforced concrete members in real time. In this class you will learn how GRAITEC’s Revit-software-based 3D rebar design tools deliver real benefits by consolidating design decisions based on local codes to accurately create 3D rebar in Revit software on the fly with localized families. These tools also produce automatic reinforcement drawings and schedules, published to the cloud or through Autodesk 360 cloud-computing platform ready for fabrication by the rebar manufacturer.
- Learn how to start from a Revit model, which includes the geometry of reinforced concrete elements, the loads, and also the FEM results
- Learn how to complete structural design assumptions according to different design codes and discover how to publish this information in A360
- Learn how to design reinforced concrete members in Revit Structure and see how to get the design reports and post process the results
- Learn how to automatically get the 3D structural rebar with the corresponding views and drawing sheets published in A360
Joseph is a structural engineer with 20 years’ experience in the AEC industry. Joseph started his career working for the French SNCF Company on the “Concorde Lafayette” train substation. Then, in 1997, he moved to GRAITEC France as a structural engineer doing demos-training-projects on the internal calculation software’s (finite elements and reinforced concrete design software’s). Today, Joseph is Product Director at GRAITEC INNOVATION SAS in charge of all internal products and also provides dynamic analysis and reinforced concrete consultancy to highly skilled GRAITEC customers. Joseph has also taught dynamic analysis and reinforced concrete design for more than 10 years at the French university, Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (CNAM).
Carl Spalding: Starting his career as a structural draughtsman for a prominent engineering company in Southern Africa, Carl quickly worked his way up to DO Manager, and then Director of his own design company; developing practical skills born of real-world experience and a refined passion of adopting technology to eliminate repetitive tasks. Since moving to the UK in 2000, Carl has established a prosperous career within the Autodesk channel working with, and supporting both SME and major UK firms in the AEC and Infrastructure industry and gaining a wealth of industry knowledge and understanding of Autodesk's extensive portfolio in the process. This knowledge combined with his strong structural background and his passion for innovation and ambition to succeed, has resulted in quick succession through GRAITEC ranks and is now Graitec Product Strategy Director where he is using his skills to influence the future of construction technology to come.
