Rebar Splice Dimensioning - Revit 2025

Hi,

I can't snap to rebar end to draw my dimension line to show overlap length.

I got angry and closed it without saving.

Rebar is created using free form tool.

just check you have a section that shows all the rebar set and use tab to hover the selcetion

the solution to your & that 'issue' is to use Lbars (or Ubars) with hooks at ends rather than rebar shapes with multiple segments. If what you show in your snip is a typical slab edge bars, I'd suggest model them with hooks. You always can override hook lengths if required

I used sketch tool from free form rebar to draw continuous rebar for this beam:

Do you have a solution for it?

I don't follow. How does this last question relate to the one you asked before?
anyways, it can be a shape driven bar in your last image. No need to use Freeform I'd say. when you sketch just pick shape driven. There're multiple ways you can model a bar like that & sketching is one of them, so you're doing all right

The reason I couldn't snap to rebar end, was because I used free form rebar, as a result the rebar plane and dimension plane were perpendicular and I couldn't snap to rebar end (current limitation in Revit).

 

So I was looking for another way except sketching, to draw that rebar to solve my problem.
