New Reinforcement Tools in GRAITEC PowerPack for Revit

 

The PowerPack for Revit® includes many tools that generally aid daily practices making it very attractive for any Revit® user looking to save time and improve their experience, but the latest version of the PowerPack for Revit® includes even more general productivity tools aimed at improving every-day use that make it extremely hard for the even the most experienced Revit® user to ignore.

The biggest difference in this release however, is the introduction of an impressive range of practical tools and functionality around reinforced concrete modelling and documentation. GRAITEC clearly aims to strengthen its presence in the structural sector and, by delivering essential tools to manage rebar in Revit®, entice both users of traditional 2D RC systems and their Autodesk® Advance Concrete users to migrate seamlessly to Revit®.

Carl Spalding, GRAITEC Product Strategy Director, comments: “Revit® is widely recognised as the go-to product for BIM modelling and is fast becoming a robust multi-industry BIM platform. GRAITEC strategy is to become a leading worldwide BIM technology provider, combining our and Autodesk technologies to deliver real benefits to customers and accelerate BIM adoption around the world. These latest additions to the PowerPack for Revit® will bring speed and efficiency to modeling rebar in Revit® and make the world of BIM for reinforcement considerably more accessible to the market and Revit® community”.

In its short time, the PowerPack for Autodesk® Revit® from GRAITEC, has quickly become a well-established add-on, adopted by thousands of Revit® users worldwide and it is clear GRAITEC is committed to providing tools that hone in on the needs of Revit® users from all industries. Here are a few examples: 

  • A slick window arranger which allows all active window views to tiled, easily adjusted and all views cantered.
  • Simple dialogue to change the visibility state showing or hiding reinforcement in an element.
  • Expand area reinforcement to slabs of any irregular shape in one operation.
  • Quickly create, explode, adjust and divide Rebar sets
  • Project browser allows you to quickly show or hide elements in the model by instance or category.
  • Password protect your Revit® families with a secure watermark with the Watermark Manager.
  • And many more…
