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 RebarCAD details. These can be simply inserted into new drawings when required. RebarCAD's full integration with AutoCAD’s Multiple Document Interface (MDI) means you can simply copy and paste RebarCAD 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 RebarCAD details as they are created or manipulated. VPM will automatically rescale details when moved between viewports.

Range Type Selection


Edit Couplers

RebarCAD 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 RebarCAD to meet your needs.

RebarCAD 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. It also includes a number of shapes to meet the extra requirements for seismic detailing to IS 13920:1993 Edition 1.2 (2002-03).

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

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

Format Schedule Dialogue

Schedule Dialogue

An impressive aspect of RebarCAD 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, RebarCAD adds them to the internal schedule database automatically. RebarCAD 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

RebarCAD 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.

RebarCAD 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 

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

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