Rebar schedules and shop drawings in Revit

Module overview

These topics are always my favorite because we get to get out of the weeds a little. What I mean by that is, we can start to see the positive results of the work we put in modeling all of our elements properly, using tags instead of text, and resisting the urge to just draw lines and hatches. I have said it before, Revit is a database. It is now time to start querying that information.

This content takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. By the end, you should be able to:

  • Create rebar schedules.
  • Use the Precast tab to split concrete elements in to precast panels.
  • Create shop drawings using reinforcing settings and precast panels.


This content requires user-level knowledge of Revit and is focused on best practices and its industry applications. If you don't have experiences with this product, we recommend you to take foundational training using one of the resources below:
