Allplan for Rebar Detailers
Rebar is a vital element to the integrity of any concrete structure, but the current means to achieve an efficient workflow, for a rebar detailer, leaves much to be improved upon. Fractured communication between the structural engineer, general contractors, sub-contractors, and field personnel can lead to costly errors and clashes on the job site.
Coordination is critical to maintain a tight construction schedule, avoid site errors and eliminate costly extensions. Building information modeling (BIM) gives drafters the ability to work in their familiar 2D drawing, while generating a 3D model. Functions like automatic bar placement and bending tools can cut the time it would take to design projects.

Allplan Engineering for Building Reinforcement takes the guesswork out of rebar detailing and allows you to problem-solve more efficiently.
An Introduction to Rebar Detailing
The question, “what do you do for a living?” is a simple one that any working professional can answer. however, there are professions within the AEC industry that are not commonly recognized—a rebar detailer is one of them.
The Professional Problem Solvers
Rebar detailers are not only interpreters, the core of their skill set lies in problem-solving. They put the pieces of a puzzle together to create the right drawing, and in turn, the correct fabricated rebar.
The Future of Rebar Detailing
In the AEC, there is a controversy over 3D and BIM, vs 2D. While 3D is a component of BIM, it is not BIM in and of itself.
