IMPACT Reinforcement provides the tools you need to generate intelligent steel reinforcement models, drawings and bar bending schedules. It is a plug-in application for AutoCAD and BricsCAD that provides an easy and intuitive way of defining complex reinforcement for both in-situ (RC) and precast concrete structures. Templates can be used to ensure that detailing is presented according to national practice, or your own preferences.
The smart objects in IMPACT Reinforcement contain all necessary information to define rebar including bar marks, shape codes, leg lengths, end hooks and material. Quantities are calculated automatically from distribution lines and spacing. Depending on view direction and bar settings, the bars are shown as easily read symbolic representations according to standard, but can also be displayed as 3D solids (as shown in the image above).

Drawing tools such as bars from polyline and surface reinforcement make rebar drafting quick and easy. Variable leg lengths and running length bars are also handled.
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.
|IMPACT Reinforcement Features:||Benefits:|
