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...

We produce our plans, then calculate rebar quantities off them, using an excel spreadsheet to keep track of it all.

It actually isn't too tedious that way, but it does take time. It would be great to just model it all in CAD during the design phase and have the program spit out our detailing sheets.
