    Description

    CAD has helped grow the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry far beyond manually produced paper drawings, empowering us to produce more complex, more accurate designs. Today, the AEC industry continues to face new challenges, including financial constraints that increase pressure to deliver projects more quickly and accurately. As a result, AEC firms are evolving their technology once again. In recent years, the move from CAD to Building Information Modeling (BIM) has accelerated as BIM workflows have proven to deliver many benefits over CAD. With the rise of BIM, many new capabilities for reinforced concrete design and rebar detailing have been introduced in BIM authoring tools. When using Revit for rebar design and detailing, every structural member can be modeled, documented, tracked, and controlled, and design changes can be coordinated easily and managed accurately. Don't wait to move to BIM—the right time is NOW.
