Structural engineers, especially those who specialize in concrete buildings, often perform reinforcement detailing tasks. There are several features tools in Autodesk® Revit® that can assist with rebar creation, like creating a group of reinforcement or individual rebar, area reinforcement, and fabric sheets. It’s quite OK because you can use standard shapes or draw a unique shape of rebar, define different layout rules, and so on. But if you need to do that over and over again, it takes huge amounts of time.

So, whilst searching for tools that can help save you time, don’t overlook the visual programming tool inside Revit – Dynamo. Even with some basic knowledge and efforts, Revit users can quickly learn it and start creating their own basic scripts to automate work.

Our team has arrived in Louisville, the Gateway to the South, for The Precast Show. Time to get the booth all set up for the grand opening of the Show at 2 p.m. on Thursday.

If you're involved in the design and fabrication of precast concrete and you'll be at the Show, Valensas and Jan (see their mugshots below) can show how to streamline your process. They especially hope to re-connect with existing users to talk about your further needs and expectations. They look forward to meeting you at right by the bookstore!
