Rebar element in Revit

Hi Speckle Team,

First thanks for the amazing work on speckle.

Second, Is there any chance that you will support the Revit rebar element soon?

Best Regards

Hey @gjordanp,

Great to hear that you like what we do.

Yes, rebar support is definitely on the list of Revit types to support. Could you tell me a bit more about what you try to achieve? How do you use rebar in your workflow? Are there any other applications in your workflow? I just want to understand your use case more.

Hi Pavol,

You can see our workflow right here!!

Basically we are involved in all the life cicle of the rebar.

  1. We Analize
  2. We Design
  3. We Document
  4. We get Takeouts
  5. We send them to shop
  6. We deliver to site
  7. On site they assembly

From steps 3 to 5 we are using bim models to store rebar data in Revit.

Right now, we are developing a web plataform to scale this workflow to more Real states and Construction companies so they can manage rebars themselves from their own models.

For this we are trying to decide what platform to use Autodesk Forge, ThreeJS or Specke.

For us is simpler to keep on Autodesk Products, but I’m inclined to use opensource platform’s because y see higher benefits on the long term.

Best Regards


Thank you for details of your workflow @gjordanp . We are working on number of improvements for the Revit Connector in current release cycle and we’ll take a look at better support for rebar.

I’m happy that you appreciate benefits of open source solutions and I’ll have more news soon. Stay tuned.
