We MODEL reinforcement
We start a reinforced concrete structure design with making a 3D model in Tekla Structures. Following this we model all reinforcment down to the last stirrup. Thanks to this we are confident all rebar will fit into the formwork maintaining required cover. We can also clearly see if there are any reinforcement clashes and if rebar can be easily placed. On our sites there is no leftovers resulting from rough rebar calculation. Thanks to 3D modeling we can easily monitor the current use of concrete and reinforcing steel.
Floor plans, sections, details and schedules are generated automatically from the 3D model which excludes drafting errors. As a standard we provide Tekla BIMsight model containing all rebar and all information (diameters, spacings, covers, weights, volumes, stages etc). It can be viewed in free Tekla BIMsight viewer. Our models can be also opened in every CAD program. They can be also uploaded to REVIT using dedicated Tekla-REVIT link. As result REVIT will recognize Tekla objects as its own.
