    In this hands-on lab, you will learn how to model and adjust reinforcement using all the tools available in Revit software. We’ll use practical examples, ranging from typical building structures to complex structural elements. We’ll learn how rebar constraints work and how to use their power to make precise adjustments to bars, yielding clash-free rebar models. We’ll learn the differences between shape-driven and free-form rebar, and which tools and modeling techniques are practical for different types of concrete elements. We’ll use the scheduling tools in Revit to extract rebar fabrication data, and learn best practices for getting that data for both shape-driven and free-form rebar.

    Key Learnings

    • Describe the reinforcement modeling tools in Revit
    • Learn how to control the bar geometry precisely and how the bars react to changes
    • Learn how to select the best approach and rebar tool for the task at hand
    • Learn how to extract fabrication data for any type of rebar
