Reinforcement Dynamic Block

From the Autodesk App Store:

This Reinforcement Dynamic block app makes drawing reinforcement sections easier. This block is very useful when drawing a reinforced concrete section because it automatically makes custom dimension rebar shapes (different kind of stirrups, U form, L form).

There are 7 different widely used shapes and 6-40∅ diameter rebars. Moreover, it is not transparent, it makes intersecting lines disappear.

IMPERIAL VERSION (USA/American standard)
  • Rebars are bent by a radius defined in ACI 318 Building Code and recommendations of CRSI (Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute):
  • 6d for #3 through #8;
  • 8d for #9, #10 and #11 (adjusted to CRSI recommendations);
  • 10d for #14 and #18 (adjusted to CRSI recommendations);

METRIC VERSION (EU/European standard)
  • Rebars are bent by a radius defined in EuroCode2:
  • 6-16∅ are bent by an inner radius of 4∅/2. 
  • >16∅ are bent by an inner radius of 7∅/2.
