Automating reinforcement placement and drawings for precast

Detailing reinforcement for precast concrete projects can be time-intensive and error-prone, especially when using 2D CAD software.

Once bar schemas have been generated, it's not easy to validate the information against the 2D draft, and it is even harder if you have to modify the existing bars to correct an error or update the design.

When openings are added or the structure's geometry changes the reinforcement becomes out of date and has to be redrawn. Depending on the size of the project, this could be extremely time-consuming, and cause a bottleneck that affects the overall deliverables.

In this webinar we will do a deep-dive into innovative new 3D tools that streamline the entire design, reinforcement and documentation process. 

We will also showcase enhanced Cut Bars and Join Bars commands. These commands allow the user to cut or join reinforcing singularly or in bulk.

This webinar will explore:

  • Where bottlenecks exist are in the precast concrete project delivery process
  • Why 2D process of reinforcement and creating production plans are error prone
  • How 3D modeling tools can produce precast drawings and documentation easily and accurately in a fraction of the time compared to 2D drawing methods

Time Saving Techniques for Detailing Reinforcement in Above-Grade Structures

Detailing Reinforcement in Above-Grade Structures monitor

Building off our previous webinar, Advanced Reinforcement - Detailing Below Grade Foundations, we will look at some of time saving techniques for detailing reinforcing in above grade structures. We will demonstrate reinforcement placements in elevated slabs, columns, and beams.

Advanced Reinforcement - Detailing Below Grade Foundations

Below Ground Foundations recording

In this webinar we will look at some of time saving techniques for detailing reinforcing in below-grade foundations. We will demonstrate reinforcement placements in footings, including step footings, walls, and columns

Advanced 3D Rebar Modeling, Detailing & Scheduling

This webinar looks at an advanced approach to modeling and detailing 3D rebar. We will demonstrate how combining parametric 2D drawings with a 3D model can result in time savings, better material takeoffs and more accurate drawings.

A Better Way to Design and Reinforce Precast/Prestressed Slabs

In this webinar, we introduce using 3D modeling for precast hollowcore slabs and demonstrate how easy it is to create and panelize precast slabs, such as prestressed hollowcore, out of imported structural slabs. 

Bringing BIM to the Rebar Detailing and Estimating Industry

In this webinar we will demonstrate how rebar detailers and estimators can benefit from a 3D BIM model, without having to change their current workflow

A Better Way to Design and Reinforce Precast Wall Panels

In this webinar, we introduce the concepts of using 3D modeling for precast wall elements.

We will demonstrate how to easily create precast walls panels and automatically panelize and reinforce them at the same time.

After this webinar, you will understand:

  • Reinforcing of typical wall panels and special instances
  • Creating and placing connections
  • Drawings, scheduling and reporting

Bringing BIM to Post-Tensioned Buildings

The process of modeling a PT building can be tedious and error prone. Engineers and drafters are faced with analysis coordination, complex reinforcing, clash detection and more. Accurate modeling in the design stage can save the overall project time and money. 

Join our webinar to learn how 3D modeling of tendons and reinforcing can help on your next project.
