In this hands-on lab, we'll walk you through a concrete project workflow using GRAITEC Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers for Revit and a connected structural BIM workflow to take advantage of automation offered by BIM. You'll use Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers for Revit to automatically generate code-checked, 3D rebar cages for columns, beams, and footings of your Revit project, applying the ACI codes. You'll explore the achieved results and how you can manipulate them to a variety of situations to suit your specific or regional needs. You'll use Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers to generate engineering-approved design reports, automatically produce and fine-tune detailed drawing views, and complete bar schedules-all from Revit software. Finally, you'll create sheets and finish off the detail using some tools from the GRAITEC PowerPack for Revit, and you'll publish the documentation in BIM 360 Docs software to manage revision control.
- Learn how to use the Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers for Revit to produce designed or generic 3D rebar cages
- Learn how to transfer FEM results to achieve a connected BIM workflow
- Understand how to manipulate the predefined design assumptions to suit specific project needs
- Learn how to publish the technical documentation into BIM 360 Docs
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).
