1. Bar Bending Details on Reinforcement Drawings.

You can now add bending details to your reinforcement drawings to create accurate bar bending and installation instructions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can place bending details in plan section and elevation views, inside or outside the view crop region using the dedicated tools in the ribbon.

 

 

Modify the parameters for rebar bending details in order to best fit your reinforcement drawing needs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This new feature streamlines coordination between designers and fabricators by improving the clarity of shop drawings in Revit.

2. Bar Bending Details in Rebar Schedules.

You can now create clear fabrication instructions by adding bar bending schedules which include shape bending details that accurately represent the geometry of the bars.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can choose between showing the rebar shape parameter names or the actual values of segment lengths. Similarly to images, bending details are only visible when the schedule is placed on a sheet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This new feature streamlines coordination between designers and fabricators by improving the clarity of shop drawings in Revit.

3. New Path Alignment Options for Free Form Rebar.

In Revit 2024, now you can choose how to align the bars in the rebar set and also you can make the bars in the set to be parallel to the planar face selected in the Align/Close constraint.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can set the alignment options for free form rebar sets, using the Bar Alignment parameter in the Properties palette of the structural rebar or using the in-canvas toggle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

These new alignment options for the free form rebar increase 3D rebar modeling versatility and help you define the accurate reinforcement for standard and non-standard shapes of concrete elements.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Stirrup Orientation for Aligned Free Form Rebar

In Revit 2024, you can toggle the stirrup orientation for the aligned distribution free form rebar by pressing Space bar.

 

 

 

This applies only for the closed stirrups in the set.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Increase 3D rebar modelling versatility by greater control over free form rebars.

5. Enhanced Structural Analytical Loads

In Revit 2024, structural engineers can now apply hosted loads to specific areas of panels and members. Additionally, you can now copy loads to other hosts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This more versatile and accurate definition of structural loads, improve analytical modeling flexibility.
