CADS RebarCAD 3D and Markup: The BIM Solution from Design Intent to Rebar Modeling
Collapse Expand


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 philosophy. We’ll demonstrate an efficient workflow: Start with a structural model; create design reinforcement; mark up the model with design intent; and end with a detailed rebar model, fabrication drawings, rebar schedules, and production output files from RebarCAD 3D. We’ll also demonstrate the revision management in rebar schedule and automated rebar modeling using CADS’ Rebar Extensions.

Key Learnings

  • Learn how to prepare a rebar intent markup from design results, and how to model the design reinforcement and enhance it to a practical 3D rebar model
  • Learn how to work collaboratively within a federated model in BIM 360, and produce 2D fabrication drawings from the 3D model
  • Learn how to automate rebar modeling using CADS Rebar Extensions, and Prepare Bar Bending Schedules Manage revisions in BBS
  • Learn how to prepare custom Excel reports, and production output files for automated rebar fabrication
