Anybody who details Rebar! Fabricators, pre-casters, engineers, contractors and drafting companies, large and small.
With over 6,000 users in 80 countries, RebarCAD has been used on a huge range of projects world-wide.
RebarCAD has a proven track record unmatched by any other CAD detailing system! Over 1,000 well established North American CAD customers are using 1,600 RebarCAD licenses to detail, draw, bar list, download production data and guide placing for every conceivable type of reinforced concrete project.
RebarCAD builds on AutoCAD, the industry standard CAD platform. It fully exploits the stable 2D drawing environment of AutoCAD, tailoring a solution for rebar detailing and bar listing that meets the stringent requirements of the industry. As an integrated AutoCAD application, RebarCAD adds functionality and toolbars to your AutoCAD system, and is supported by quality user manuals and training.
If you are a Detailing Manager you will find it easy to recruit trained and experienced detailers for such an industry standard solution, whilst the level of support, advice and expertise available through our North American based help desk will impress all users.
Pre-cast concrete producers benefit from significant increases in productivity from RebarCAD. The details library can be used to create a catalogue of standard components that can be retrieved and modified to suit any new job in seconds. Powerful editing commands, such as the stretch feature, mean that such standard library details can be modified easily and quickly to suit each new project.
Larger structures such as culverts are a good example of how details can be manipulated to the correct size and a new bar or parts list generated automatically! Assorted smaller items such as beams, drainage components, etc. can be assembled in a single drawing to produce separate or combined parts lists, as required.
In-place producers benefit from many detailing and presentation features found in RebarCAD which present them with the ideal detailing solution. Color coding bars and color plotting is favoured over traditional ‘cut-n-paste’ technique by ‘iron-workers’ in the ‘in-place’ markets. ‘Iron-workers’ argue that, ‘why bother with a traditional placing list when we have a descriptive color drawing which contains all the data we need?’.
Suitable for all sorts of jobs, RebarCAD drawings show how to place the bars with an automatic placing list and notes field. In complex situations RebarCAD can be used to produce full profile (real size) views of bars at different scales. RebarCAD can attach up to 5 lines of notes to a single bar call off, more placing information than any other detailing system!
