Pre-cast Contractors

Learn More

Pre-cast contractors looking to minimise scrap and wastage, due to inaccurate reinforcement drawings, mistakes in Bar Bending Schedules (BBS) and unutilised Off-Cuts appreciate the quality of CADS RC drawings and BBS. When this is coupled with intelligent bar optimisation and take-off facilities the cost savings speak for themselves!

Custom Queries and Reports


CADS strive to accommodate users’ requirements and detailing styles, which means that the software is easily configured to suit your company and individual detailing needs. For instance, using the built-in report designer you can customise your printed Bar Bending Schedules to include such things as company logos.

You can use standard AutoCAD block technology to build up your own libraries of commonly used CADS RC details. These can be simply inserted into new drawings when required. CADS RC's full integration with AutoCAD’s Multiple Document Interface (MDI) means you can simply copy and paste CADS RC details between drawings.

Key Feature: CADS Viewport Manager (VPM)
This product greatly simplifies the creation and editing of AutoCAD Layouts and Viewports so you can achieve your required plotted page. Once you have defined your Viewports and their associated scales then CADS-VPM will automatically apply the required scale to CADS RC details as they are created or manipulated. VPM will automatically rescale details when moved between viewports.

Range Type Selection


Edit Couplers

CADS RC detailing features include an extensive selection of bar ranges to suit every situation. Whether you are detailing a flat slab, circular tank, bridge deck or abutment, you will find a detailing facility in CADS RC to meet your needs.

CADs RC comes complete with pre-defined shape codes, which based upon feedback from major consulting engineers and contractors, cover the majority of requirements. For shapes that are not included in the standard list there is an unlimited ‘user-definable shape code facility that provides a fast graphical definition within the drawing. New shapes created by you can be added permanently to the library for future use.

A variety of powerful CADS RC Detailing Macros are available for stair flights, pile caps, pad footings and octagonal bases. Such details can also be amended later with CASD RC's extensive reinforcement editing tools.

CADS have established a good working relationship with manufacturers of reinforcement couplers.  CADS RC supports Ancon CCL, MacAlloy MSP, Lenton, Dextra and other leading coupler  manufacturers.

Format Schedule Dialogue

Schedule Dialogue

An impressive aspect of CADS RC is the automatic always current bar scheduling which can be formatted the way you want using simple sorting, combining and segregation options. As each set of bars is detailed, CADS RC adds them to the internal schedule database automatically. CADS RC supports linear/non-linear boundary variations and can calculate and schedule all intermediate bars.

Whatever the status of the drawing, you can be sure that your bar bending schedule is up-to-date, correct and available to be viewed on-screen at any time.

You can use AutoCAD Layouts to create multiple drawings and schedules from a single, self-contained DWG file. As well as being customised for corporate presentation, schedules can also be sorted and compacted to a minimum number of pages.

Bar Editing

CADS RC enables you to handle revisions with speed and confidence. When drawing if requirements change you can still stay on top, with a revision system that allows you to automatically generate revisions, regardless of their quantity or complexity. Changes are marked and updated automatically, with Revision clouds, tables and track change layers generated automatically. Layouts can be issued and revised individually.

CADS RC provides detailers with a unique facility to edit details quickly and easily, thus optimising the re-use of existing information. All changes to the drawing are immediately reflected in the always current bar bending schedule and all bar labels, sections etc, are also updated automatically.  Specialist commands allow you to quickly locate bars or editing via a variety of criteria.

Fabrication Output 

CADS RC is widely used by bar fabricators, who benefit from its extensive support of the various steel fabrication technologies. CADS RC is able to produce the required file formats for exporting into existing electronic bar supply chains, thus providing seamless integration.

The CADS RC bar bending schedule links directly to production software and machinery, such as Ariadis.

"Just a note regarding the new RC. I have found the new system most rewarding and simple to use. The ease at which I can separate and manage individual designs within one drawing is fantastic and it is so easy to keep track of alterations. You'll be hard pushed to better it this time!"
