New Precast Column Reinforcement tool for Revit users

columns reinforcement

Within the past year, we’ve released tools that automate the modeling of reinforcement in walls and beams in Revit. Now it’s time to introduce Column Reinforcement.

In this initial release, you can use it to place main rebar, stirrups, and corbel reinforcement in rectangular columns. While it’s primarily made for precast, it also works for cast in-situ. See the workflow for reinforcing columns in Revit.

Column Reinforcement is a feature of our Precast Concrete design software, which covers modeling and documentation of precast elements and reinforcement of walls, beams, and now columns.

New Revit Tool for Precast Concrete Column Reinforcement [WEBINAR]

Want to efficiently model reinforcement for precast concrete columns in Revit? We’ve got a new tool coming out called Column Reinforcement that does exactly that. Made for rectangular columns with corbels, it’s ideal for precast designs though it can also be used for cast-in-situ.

On September 17th we’re hosting a free webinar in which we’ll showcase the automated placement of main reinforcement, stirrups, and corbel rebar via user-defined layout rules in the Column Reinforcement addin. Sign up in the table below!

The results you’ll see in this webinar are various rebar configurations applied to several types of columns with corbels as well as how to model precast columns with connection details and generate the requisite shop drawings.

The 45-minute webinar will be held twice, so please register for the session that’s more convenient for you. We invite structural engineers, modelers, and really anyone who wants to place reinforcement in Revit more efficiently. Join in and get a look at the newest feature of AGACAD’s Precast Concrete BIM design software for Revit!
