RC Detailing Tutorial – Revit 2019

In this short tutorial we will look at the reinforcement of a simple column and foundation. The reinforcement is modelled manually to show you how reinforcement bar is placed in elements. We then schedule the reinforcement to BS8666:2005 and produce a simple drawing.


Here is the bending schedule shown below.

The tutorial is using the Excitech Revit RC template but everything else is standard Revit 2019.

Hope you enjoy the tutorial?

  1. I am having serious trouble with revit on the side of spiral staircase rebar detailing. If you could do a video example, I will highly appreciate.

  2. Hi Lawrence,

    I have a question about the RC Schedule.
    Is there any way you could have the dimension under ‘Length of bar’ to be the same as dimension ‘A’ when the bars are straight?

    At the moment they are different because one is rounded to 5 and one is rounded to 25. Some RC fabricators are asking why are they different.

    Thank you
