The rebar fabrication industry has seen great progress in the streamlining of the rebar supply chain, from rebar estimating through detailing, fabrication, and installation. We can attribute much of this progress to the software used by rebar detailers and fabricators and to the integration of that software with the fabrication hardware. Still, there is an opportunity for the industry to improve how the rebar design is transformed into the product installed on site. Attendees will learn how to export 3D rebar detailed in Revit Structure Suite software to a leading rebar MIS (management information system) software product: Applied Software Systems (aSa). This process will drive fabrication processes in the shop and field. We will cover many topics, including effective practices for detailing rebar for fabrication, organization of rebar releases in Revit software, the data exportation to and data checking in aSa, and the distribution the 3D rebar data along the supply chain.
- Understand current workflow challenges in the rebar supply chain
- Acquire effective practices in modeling rebar in Revit software for fabrication
- Learn steps to create and manage releases and export them to aSa for rebar fabrication
- Learn how rebar data can help drive efficiencies and quality in the field
