New feature for Smart Assemblies Revit add-on: Rebar images for schedules

Creating schedules in Revit is a useful way to display information from your model and prepare documentation. Flexible and suitable for multiple construction sectors, schedules can be managed using tool functions to distinguish and highlight relevant data.

From a structural perspective, when information needs to be displayed graphically, Revit users can show rebar shapes as images in a Rebar Schedule. Creating rebar schedules in native Revit that contain certain rebar images is a tedious process, though, as a typical Revit model consists of rebar elements of many types and properties.

That’s why we made a new feature to automate the process of making rebar images. The function to ‘Create Rebar Images’ is part of our Smart Assemblies Revit add-on, and it offers several, easy-to-use options for creating rebar images with just a few clicks.

How to launch AGACAD’s Revit add-ons via Dynamo

The visual programming interface of Dynamo enables designers with the tools to extract, manipulate, and move Building Information Model (BIM) data in ways that make optimized workflows accessible. Dynamo for Revit opens up an unprecedented parametric approach to projects.

With Dynamo as a visual programming tool, algorithms are connected to Revit’s parametric database, which determines conceptual design development via formulas, algorithms, and geometric functions and integration with Revit for optimization, automation, and documentation.

Revit users who design, build, operate, and maintain built environments often utilize Revit plugins to manage BIM data and enhance workflows. Now, it’s possible to engage the functionality of AGACAD’s BIM Solutions and Tools4Revit Add-ons while using Dynamo. Here’s how!

Create interlocking precast wall connections easier with this new feature of Smart Walls Revit add-on

We’ve implemented a new feature for our Smart Walls Revit add-on. In addition to controlling gap distances and joins between walls, the tool now lets you manage interlocking precast wall panels, giving you more flexibility in building design modeling.

The new Interlock Split feature modifies enhanced joint connection details between reinforced precast concrete elements and reshapes wall profiles held together by vertical steel dowels or solely by shear friction.

Let’s look at what options you now have with Smart Walls when it comes to interlocking walls in Revit models.
