SOFISTIK REINFORCEMENT DETAILING

SOFiSTiK Reinforcement Detailing significantly accelerates the creation of 2D reinforcement sheets out of 3D-Rebar models in Revit. The product consists of software and a set of families, which can easily be modified to meet national or company standards. Creation of bar lists, bending schedules and cut lists for wire meshes is included as well.

SOFiSTiK Reinforcement Detailing: Getting started

 


SOfistik Reinforcement Generation

SOFiSTiK Reinforcement Generation automatically generates a 3D rebar model inside of Autodesk® Revit® Structure based on computed analysis and design results. The rebar model provides an automatically generated proposition of reinforcement layout which fulfils the reinforcement requirement and which can be freely modified. Design requirements from construction codes and company standards can be controlled by user-defined rules similar to the approach used in expert systems. Visualization of existing reinforcement vs. required reinforcement provides a clear indication whether adequate reinforcement has been provided.

SOFiSTiK Reinforcement Generation is not a substitute for Autodesk Revit Extensions as both complement each other. Connections between elements (e.g. wall to slab) are not fully catered in this version, nor are constructional reinforcement.

 

Functionalities at a glance

  • Reading of the analysis results directly from the SOFiSTiK database (CDB) as well as from the Revit Results Packages.
  • Automatic generation of reinforcement bars for beams, columns, walls and slabs using results from analysis and design.
  • Visualization of required (theoretical) and physically inserted reinforcement ensuring that adequate reinforcement is provided.
  • Import of analysis and design results from SOFiSTiK database (CDB) and storage as Results Packages.
