    Are you on Subscription? You can get a Reinforcement Add-In through the Extensions available through Subscription Center.

    revit extension include reinforcement i know, but i need any other one with more details because that extension not helped me
    for example, i have a continuous beam with different depth, i can't use that extension to reinforcement it because the only case in it for continuous beams is for equal beams in dimension.

    No extension for this yet, except a mouse and a finger or two to click on it :-).

    Hehe, the master teaching that padawan hey Julien. What about the Sofistik plugin, will that handle more complex reinforcement patterns?

    Sofistik - best reinforcement packacge out there and the only product that offers dynamic structural analysis (as opposed to static) - at least the only product I know of. Its made by engineers for engineers, not by some IT programmer who doesnt know what the industry wants. Very good product but a price to match the quality - keep in mind it is dynamic analysis...

    https://apps.autodesk.com/RVT/en/Lis...query=sofistik

    Also if you use the 2018 revit version you can do reinforcement "by face" for complex shapes - works very well.

    Hi Karalon,

    how well does it produce reinforcement Layot dwgs?
    For example if you have astep in the slab the reo bar has a ,z, end - is that then reflected on the reo plan?
    When using the native Revit tools I have to manually go and add sybols for the un-common bar ends.

    Yeah I know what you are asking, I can't answer the question for you directly.
    I do know that Sofistik is rolling out in Australia now though, and I can put you in touch with a local tech and they can come and see you if its something that interest you.

    Send me a PM and I can get you in touch with someone that will answer any and all questions for you regarding that program.

    I have not personally used it in production drawings. What I see in most places is that people want reo to stay really productive. So most places I have been at keep producing reo using CAD plugins like BACAD or CADARM to produce the lists in CAD as they are currently adapt at using them and therefore productive. The thing that often is missing in REO schematics are the bending shapes, and tagging and most of this is ready and customisable in sofistik.

    I moved from the Australian market to Europe, and here the drafters go further in the reo detailing that normal structural offices in Oz.
    Here they produce the actual bending, length, and quantity lists to be delivered on site, there in general you are only required to show schematic design.

    As far as I know it will show what you want, but without having used it to produce a working schematic I can't give you a 100% surity on it.
    The real power in it is when used with the analytic module, which is dynamic not static analysis (I'm not aware of many other products that can do this with revit) the bridge module is...astoundingly good...anyhow I like the program the hard part is convincing your engineers/directors to learn it and invest in it as it is an expensive package with the analytic - but the rebar module can model AUTOMATICALLY in 3D straight from the engineers analysis and this will save you untold hours of productivity. I highly recommend you show your engineers and a director, see if they want a demo, then contact me and I will get you in touch with the right people.

    I know one of the developers/engineers and I am sure I can get him to videoconference for you if you like.
