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