Advance Design Reinforced Concrete Modules automatically calculate and display rebar quantities in a bar schedule, which is created by using either one of the available templates or a customized one. Based on the selected country during the installation, the Rebar Modules will lay out different collections of bar schedule templates that are displaying different reinforcement properties in several manners. Moreover, the templates can be customized for every slightly different element.

The bar schedule is generated only after the user runs the “Calculate” command; after drawings generation, it will be displayed on the same sheet with the other views of the element.

In Advance Design Rebar Modules, the Bar Schedule properties can be found in the dedicated zone from Drawings viewport, when selecting a certain bar schedule from Drawings tree (see Figure 1).
Each bar schedule template can contain many different types of structural rebar schedules along with the appropriate configurations.
