We see great advantages in detailing steel reinforcement using 3D software. It allows exact detailing of all the bars including links, lacers, bob bars and even holding down bolts. The scheduling is automated giving a greater accuracy. A 3D PDF file can be emailed to the construction site to ensure the steel fixer knows exactly where each bars needs to go. It will also optimise steel mesh sheets across a slab to reduce waste.
