Precast Concrete Modeling & Documentation in Revit [WEBINAR]

In this free 30-minute webinar on May 21st we’ll show how our Precast Concrete design software for Revit streamlines the modeling, detailing, and documentation process.

The results you’ll see are Revit walls split into precast wall panels, floors divided into slabs, and connections, grout tubes, plates, and lifting anchors automatically inserted on all of them based on predefined configurations. Rebar for walls and beams will be auto-generated, avoiding the hours it would take to do manually. And the long, tedious process of making shop drawings with proper dimensions and views will be done in a snap during this webinar using our Precast Concrete software tool.

The webinar will be held twice, so you structural engineers, drafters, and BIM modelers please register for the session that’s more convenient for you. We especially invite out-of-box Revit users and those thinking of switching from AutoCAD 2D to BIM to join in!

Topics to be covered:

  • Splitting Revit walls into wall panels
  • Creating and laying out precast slabs
  • Inserting details, connections, and cuts on slabs and wall panels
  • Inserting connection details for columns – corbels, column shoes, bolts, etc.
  • Inserting lifting anchors based on gravity point
  • Inserting cuts, anchoring holes, connection details, plates, etc. into beams
  • Updating and modifying connections
  • Precast wall reinforcement
  • Precast beam reinforcement
  • Assigning mark values based on rules for any type of precast element
  • Creating assemblies and shop drawings with automatic dimensions, scheduling, and sheets



    Our Precast Concrete design software for Autodesk Revit enables you to easily model prefabricated concrete walls, floor slabs, columns, and beams; batch-insert connection details (lifting anchors, bolts, cuts, couplers, corbels, etc.); place rebar in wall panels (solid, double, and sandwich) and beams (rectangular, L, and IT); and quickly generate shop tickets with proper element views, dimensions, and bills of materials. Since it runs on Revit, you get full project updates in real time. All that ensures quality production and accurate assembly on site.

    We hope to see you online!
