Adding reinforcement to concrete columns

Module overview

The focus of this module is to study rebar shapes, to learn how to set up a view to add a rebar cage, and how to set up the view settings to show rebar as a solid and unobscured. Different elements obviously require different rebar configurations. You learned that either in college or on the job. Revit is set up to accommodate this difference. In the first module of this course, we learned how to make a concrete column host rebar a specific way by setting up the cover settings. In the second module, we learned how to configure rebar bends. Now it's time to look at the view settings.

This module takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. By the end of the module, you should be able to:

  • Examine Rebar shapes
  • Add a Rebar Cage to a Column
  • Configure the Visibility Graphics for selected rebar
