    Rebars shape legend

    Hi

    I'm wondering if someone experimented the use of rebars length parameters (I mean the letters s.a. A B C D and so on...) that exists in rebar shape properties, to make RC schedule and legend view with the rebar shape.
    I found them (the parameters) a little tricky, cause it is hard to find the part of the shape the A or C letter deals with (for example, it's also the case with B or F!!).
    We need this in Europe, I'm still trying to find a way to deal with that without CAD.
    Length parameters for the shapes is a good start, but we need also detail component of those shapes.

    Thanks in advance for your feedback about this.

    The dimensions of A, B, C...etc always go from outside to outside. So on a shape 17 dimension "C" goes from the outside of leg "B" to the outside of leg "D". Granted on shapes like a 6 the angled part leg length is from outside of bend to outside of bend I believe. Attached is an image of one of our legends.

    What all are you looking for exactly and I can see what I can rummage up?

      thanks for the answer. What I intended to do is to use Revit for detailling in the way you can see in pictures below.(French standard). I didn't achieve this until I looked at the A B etc parameters, meaning the shape dimensions.
      So my thought was exactly the picture you're showing me. Adding of course the schedule of rebars.
      How did you deal with it? Detail component? legend view?

          cool, I want the same thing. Your legend is done in 2d detail I guess, you don't use shapes that exists inside Revit? (I would love to use the pictures available in the rebar shape browser!!).

            Right, it is just a 2D detail... I didn't even think of that, using the pictures avaiable in the rebar shape browser would be pretty nice! All these shapes do exist in Revit, but I just make them as I need.

              Guys, have either of you develop the rebar legend any further? I am working on site reinforcement plans and would love to be able to produce drawings direct from Revit. Currently we do all of this in ACAD which seems a shame when all the data already exists in Revit.

              I've found an add-on that may work (www.tools4revit.com/Fast-Documentation/Dynamic-Legend) what do you guys think?

              Are you willing to share any more of your work please?

                Hi,

                Do you guys model all the reinforcement for your concrete structures?
                If you do -how do you go about annotating the reinforcement in plan view in regards to reo lap etc?
                When I had a quick look at it at one point it seems you almost doubling up on work - ie first you have to model the reinforcement and then layout out you detail components to create a plan that the builder/scheduler actually can read.

                  I am a fresher user of revit Structure, I hv some questions that I tackle when I'm working with, I need ur help pls.
                  ma Qns:
                  1: Is that possible to model the drawing 4rm Auto Cad in revit structure?.
                  2: How can I do analysis for multistorey buildings?
                  (What I know all analysis is done in analytical level but we just have 2 analytical level so what if u hv more than one
                  storey buildings?)
                  3: How can I link revit architecture drawing and continue with analysis in revit structure.


                  Pls pls help me to understand this even if ur hv a video that can explain to me well pls send to

                    1) I import (link) AutoCad drawings and use them as support to erect the model. ACAD 3D models are "dumb".
                    2) Analysis can't be done in Revit. You either buy a 3D party analysis software (RISA, Etabs etc), or Autodesk Robot, download the Extensions and perform the analysis in thoose programs or send it to the Cloud(s). You can use "Project Storm" if you are in a "blessed" country.
                    3)Technically it is possible. Practically is a pain.
                    Link the RAC model in a RST file. Insert structural elements (column, beams, floors, walls) or transform the architectural ones. Set the structure to "Temporarily Display Only Analytical Model", go to "Analyze" tab, "Analytical adjust", adjust the model. Then go to step 2.
                    Also it's a good ideea to place the Loads in Revit. If you work with Robot, they are not visible in Revit.
