IMPACT Reinforcement is an application to model and schedule rebar in AutoCAD.
IMPACT Reinforcements smart objects contain all necessary information to define rebar including bar mark, shape code, leg lengths, end hooks and material. Quantities are calculated automatically from distribution lines and spacing. Depending on view direction and bar settings, the bars are shown as easily read symbolic representations according to standard, but can also be displayed as 3D solids.
Drawing tools such as bar from polyline and surface reinforcement make rebar drafting quick and easy. Variable leg lengths and running length bars are also handled.
With rebar defined as smart objects, schedules can be created with the push of a button. Customizable layout and data extraction ensures consistency with company standards. Multiple dwg files can be connected to share bar mark definitions and allows for common scheduling across several drawings. For large projects, schedules can be filtered on any bar data, such as construction part or cast phase for easier call-off.
Rebar data can be exported to xml and bvbs or saved directly to Celsa Steelservice’s QR web schedule service.
Most objects in IMPACT Reinforcement can be adapted to user preferences or company standards. End marks, end hooks, shape codes, rebar text, materials with bar diameters and jig radii, schedule layout and data can all be modified, to name a few.
