Autodesk Revit Structure 2017: Variable Rebar Distribution

Hi folks, IX here, one of the Senior Application Specialists at Ideate, Inc. Let’s talk reinforcement in Revit 2017.

One of my top five favorite features in Revit 2017 is the ability to add Rebar Sets to non-standard concrete shapes (e.g. tapered beams).

This enhanced feature will increase your 3D modeling productivity and help you to define accurate reinforcement for non-standard shapes in concreate elements. Additionally, you’ll be able to use multi-rebar annotations, customizable numbering settings, and you’ll have more accurate schedules that will display varying rebar lengths.

To see this feature enhancement workflow in action, check out this short video.
