Basically, you are able to assign rebar values to a 3D object, and any geometry changes to that object automatically updates the rebar information.

The really interesting (and time saving) part was that it automatically creates a Rebar Cut & Bend file.

So, I'm wondering if anyone here is using that, or something similar. The best way that I can see for our company to boost productivity would be to better automate our rebar detailing.
I work with Bentley Microstation and ASA Rebar software. I used to detail, but now I estimate.

I will have to look into this.

Just for reference, one of our detailers just left, he uses a Pentel 0.5mm and tracing paper...
