RebarCAD 3D provides an excellent and comprehensive set of tools to perform the crucial task of placing and detailing reinforcement in a Revit model, staying true to the BIM (Building Information Modeling) philosophy. We will demonstrate an efficient workflow to start with a structural model, create design reinforcement, and end with a detailed rebar model, fabrication drawings, rebar schedules, and production output files from RebarCAD 3D. During this class, we will show you how to use Revit software and RebarCAD 3D to prepare a practical arrangement of rebar with laps and splices, stock lengths, and stepped tapers. We will also demonstrate how to produce an annotated 2D fabrication drawing and a Bar Bending Schedule. Another topic covered will be to explain and demonstrate how to assign rebar to releases and generate production output files to the BVBS format and to other production systems like Soulé.
