AGACAD launches rebar-modelling automation for Revit

PRESS RELEASE – Vilnius, 27 April 2020

AGACAD Ltd, the developer of advanced technologies for building information modelling and management, is proud to introduce BIM tools that generate detailed reinforcement for concrete walls and beams in Revit along with all shop drawings and production files.

The new Wall Reinforcement and Beam Reinforcement software with automated rebar-modelling functionality are part of AGACAD’s popular Precast Concrete suite of Revit add-ons.

“The addition of reinforcement detailing for precast concrete is a step forward that structural professionals have long awaited. There is a big need – modelling rebar can be very time-consuming but is increasingly important as BIM takes hold and models get more and more detailed. Now it is even clearer, as we like to repeat, that BIM is very good for precast and Revit is ideal,” says Donatas Aksomitas, the CEO of AGACAD.

Autodesk Inc., the maker of Revit, the world’s leading software platform for BIM, in 2018 named the company one of its first Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) Industry Partners, citing AGACAD’s transformational precast technologies. Industry Partners build on top of Autodesk’s platforms to enable customers to work more efficiently, deliver better designs, and reduce waste.

AGACAD’s Precast Concrete design software, for the detailed modelling and documentation of precast walls, floor slabs, beams, and columns in Revit, has helped to make Revit the environment of choice for BIM precast work.

Valensas Balsevičius, a structural engineer and BIM Application Engineer at AGACAD, says the software stands out for powerful rules-based creation, insertion and modification, real-time updates, saveable templates, built-in best practices, and outstanding customer support.

“We’re committed to helping our customers deliver BIM-based services in a more productive way, providing the automation and customization needed for factories and on-site work too,” says Valensas. “For rebar, beyond current support for solid, double, and sandwich walls, and for rectangular, L, and inverted T beam sections, we intend shortly to add columns and more useful features,” he adds.
