Reinforcing A Concrete Footing In Revit Using Graitec BIM Designers

In this guide we are going to look at how to reinforce a concrete footing in Revit using the Graitec BIM Designers tool. There are some standard reinforcement tools built into Revit, which allow us to manually reinforce concrete elements in the Revit model, these tools are useful but can be time consuming. With the help of the Graitec BIM Designers tool we are going to speed this process up.

Firstly, if desired we can predefine assumptions on any element. To do this, select the element and then go to: Graitec Concrete > Assumptions > Reinforcement > Reinforcement Assumptions.

We can then for example, in the footing reinforcement force a closed link along.

With the footing still selected, we then use Graitec Detailing > Reinforcement > Edit Rebar Reinforcing A Concrete Footing In Revit Using Graitec BIM Designers 4

This opens the reinforcement wizard where we define the reinforcement we want. We can set the closed links (the ones we set in the assumptions), top bars, bottom bars and for each of those we can define the bar diameter, quantity of bars, spacing of bars & end offset etc.. We can also place Longitudinal reinforcement (starter bars) and Transversal reinforcement (links).

Once we are happy we click the OK button and the wizzard will generate the reinforcement acordingly. The rebar is just standard Revit rebar and so can be edited with the built in tools, e.g. number of bars, spacing, bar diameters etc…
