Revit 2017: Reinforcement Connectors

Hi folks, IX here, one of the senior application specialists at Ideate, Inc. I'm back with more talk on reinforcement in Revit 2017.

Another one of my top five features in Revit 2017 is the ability to add 3D reinforcement connector modeling elements to my project. This new feature will improve the level of detail for reinforcement modeling and documentation.

The Reinforcement Connectors are family-based and fully customizable, enabling each team member the ability to use them according to his/her needs, whether it be in schematic design for the structural engineers or shop drawings for the detailers. Rebar Connectors interact with the rebar that they connect to and adapt to changes with the rebar. Additionally, you can add the connectors to groups, assemblies, and partitions with unique coupler numbering. Like other Revit elements will exported to various CAD formats.
To see this new feature in action, check out this short video, Revit Structure 2017: Reinforcement Connectors.
