The Advance Design Reinforced Concrete Modules are a set of very powerful and innovative feature, which automatically creates engineering drawings using localized configurable templates and based on the real calculated 3D rebar cage.
In order to support multiple workflows, the Reinforced Concrete Modules can be used directly on Autodesk® Revit as part of PowerPack for Autodesk Revit, on Advance Design, or as a standalone process. As a result, the production and configuration of detailed drawings are managed by two different drawing technologies depending on the chosen workflow.
The GRAITEC Advance Design Reinforced Concrete Modules can generate complete engineering drawings to a specified page format, containing sections and elevations. The bar schedule and the title block are also automatically included. The possibility to produce drawings is available only after reinforcement calculation and updated after every manual adjustment of the reinforcement.
When working on Advance Design or in standalone mode, the generated drawings are based on one of the default *.dwg templates. These files include dynamic blocks, the drawing style (a .dwt template file containing layer colors, line weights, text styles, symbols, etc.), the page layout, the scale of the drawings, the title block type, and the bar schedule, all of which can be customized from the dedicated zone in Drawings page.
The drawing presentation is fully defined in a .dwt document. This describes the layers, colors and styles used for each reinforcement type, text and dimension:
The user also has the possibility to enable generation and customization of the bending details that will be placed automatically in the different reinforcement drawing views:
