When we talk about the software for 3D Modelling of Reinforcement in RC Structures, every client is looking for some basic aspects, such as:
- Saving time
- Compatibility with bar bending machines
- Tailored to fit according to the company
- Speed up the detailing
- Avoid design conflicts
We are happy to share that our customer centric approach and technological expertise has helped us to deliver all the needs of our end users, the different features of the IMPACT Reinforcement are designed in such a way that they cater to all the day to day needs of our end users.
IMPACT Reinforcement provides the tools you need to generate intelligent steel reinforcement models, drawings and schedules. IMPACT Reinforcement is a plug-in application for AutoCAD and BricsCAD which helps in providing an easy and intuitive way of defining complex reinforcement for both in-situ (RC) as well as precast concrete structures. Templates can be used to ensure that detailing is presented according to the practices of the specific geographical location, the country, or your own preferences.
The smart objects in IMPACT Reinforcement contain all necessary information to define rebar including shape code, bar mark, end hooks, leg lengths, and material. IMPACT Reinforcement helps to calculate quantities automatically from distribution lines and spacing. Depending on the bar settings and view direction, the bars are shown as easily read symbolic representations according to standard, but can also be displayed as 3D solids.
Drawing tools such as bars from polyline and surface reinforcement make rebar drafting easy and quick. Variable leg lengths and running length bars are also handled in IMPACT Reinforcement.
With rebar defined as smart objects, schedules can be created with the push of a button. Customizable layout and data extraction ensure consistency with company standards. Multiple DWG files can be connected to share bar mark definitions and allows for common scheduling across several drawings. For large projects, schedules can be filtered on any bar data, such as construction part or cast phase for easier call-off.
With IMPACT Reinforcement, your data can easily be exported to XML and BVBS or saved directly to the Celsa Steel services QR web schedule service.
Most objects in IMPACT Reinforcement can be adapted to your own preferences or company standards. End marks, end hooks, shape codes, rebar text, materials with bar diameters and jig radii, schedule layout and data can all be modified, just to name a few.
Collectively all these features and their usability for the end users makes ‘IMPACT Reinforcement’ the best software for 3D Modelling of Reinforcement in RC Structures.
