If you are a structural engineer or structural concrete detailer then you will want to read on. We are seeing a very clear trend towards vertical solutions built on top of Revit. That trend has accelerated quite a bit over the past 18 months. For example at Autodesk University in Las Vegas this November it was difficult to find anyone in the exhibit hall who was doing business in the building industry and did not have a connection or solution for Revit.
One of the solutions that I think is quite interesting is "SOFiSTiK Reinforcement for Autodesk® Revit®”. I got to see a demo of the product at AU and was quite impressed. It is something that has been under development for some time. The tool helps layout concrete reinforcement and then generate the 2D detailing drawings. Even though it is still a work in progress it already does quite a bit. The other interesting thing about it is that it work very well with the concrete reinforcement Revit Extensions.Check out the tool from SOFiSTiK and tell us what you think.
Also we would be interested in what you currently do for your concrete layout and detailing. Do you use Revit, do you use the Revit Extensions?
