This video made by Shruti Harve, Senior Application Specialist at Ideate, Inc. goes over enhancements made to reinforcement modeling in Autodesk Revit Structure 2013. These include:
- Fabric Reinforcement has been added to Autodesk Revit Structure 2013. You can now place evenly lap-spliced Fabric Sheets in floors, walls or foundation slabs.
- Area and Path Reinforcement can now host rebar. You can now display rebar elements in floors, walls or foundation slabs in 3D views, schedule rebar and remove the area or path system to expose the individual rebar elements.
- Improved snapping and alignment to fillets and hooks. You can now avoid interferences and collisions with other rebar while placing a rebar/rebar set in the fillet or hook.
- Several new Structural Unit Types have been added including those for Structural Rebar: Reinforcement Area and Reinforcement Area per Unit Length.
