SOFiSTiK Reinforcement Technology Preview

"The goal of this Preview Version of SOFiSTiK Reinforcement for Autodesk® Revit® is to enable the productive design of 3D reinforcement with Autodesk® Revit®. This particularly includes the creation of 2D plans and steel schedules. The current program version offers at his time around '80% functionality', and serves the following purposes:
  • The practice shall get an overview of the direction in which the development is proceeding.
  • SOFiSTiK AG and Autodesk shall obtain feedback from practice regarding any open feature wishes and the handling of the program.
  • In certain configurations,  productive use may be possible.

“SOFiSTiK Reinforcement for Autodesk® Revit®” is seen as an essential tool, generating the possibility for an integrated method of operation using the ideas of Building Information Modeling. The term integrated, in this case, is understood as the creation of reinforcement plans by direct extraction from the complete three-dimensional model.

"SOFiSTiK and Autodesk are working continuously to further improve the software.
The add ons from SOFiSTiK AG will also become commercially available as a product with one of the next releases of Autodesk® Revit®."
