I wish I did

1- Construction drawings - settings
The drawing templates manager allows to define how the structure drawings of   elements in AutoCAD ® Structural Detailing - Reinforcement will be created. It includes defining parameters of appearance of individual structure elements (colors, scale, plans, reinforcement descriptions, etc.); drawing templates for each type of element are created this way.


All the parameters defined in the dialog refer to the link between the AutoCAD ® Structural Detailing - Reinforcement and Autodesk Revit Structure or Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis. The reinforcement drawings generated for the structure elements transferred to AutoCAD ® Structural Detailing - Reinforcement from the applications mentioned above will be created in accordance with the settings saved in the drawing templates manager.
(Option to be valid in the Job preferences without Revit / Robot existence / need)

2- Reinforcement / formwork of typical RC
Options to include
                              a- Core/shear walls with door openings
                              b- Sump / lift pits in rafts - of sloped bottom surfaces (see note below)
                              c- Curved beams
                              d- Beam with different depths / widths
                              e- Spiral stair / ramp slab with edge beam (this beam can be spiral with variable elevation or can be
                                  deep beam with constant level) and upstand above

    More than one segment are varying in the same time in one bar (all the segments of this bar are located in one plan - this bar
    is 2D bar), length of one segment is increasing while the the length of another segment is decreasing.
    This type of bars will exist in the follwing cases:
    A- Four corners of sloped bottom surfaces in lift pit or sump pit areas in some rafts in foundations.
    B- Column head / crown
    C- Slab drop panel
    D- Different slab thickness

Please download and watch the file in the link below.

3- Option or feature to consider / convert the finished structure element such as the reinforcement details of beam with different
    depths and widths into an easy template / macro which can be used in the future incase of similar conditions exist or incase
    of modifications are required.

4- DEFINITION OF BAR REINFORCEMENT - bar elevation (longitudinal reinforcement)
    Option to make bar offset.


5- Description of reinforcement style. Option to save as New Style.


6- Reinforcement tables
                      Bars - main table
                                        Option to display the variable bar length (not avarage, min, max lengths only)

7- Reinforcement tables - style manager
                                        DETAILED - bars
                                                        Table componenet and layout
                                                                                    Option to add bar Diameter.                                                                   


8- Point reinforcement
                      select bar [Next] (option to select more than one bar in the same time and distribute them using the Reinforcement - point option)
