AutoPadds is an extension for AutoCAD® with reinforcement detailing functionality similar to that of Padds. AutoPadds complements and extends the reinforcement functionality of Revit®.
With AutoPadds, you can detail reinforcement directly in AutoCAD®. You can open Padds drawings and work with bending schedules generated by the PROKON ®concrete design modules. You can also link reinforcement layouts created with AutoPadds into your Revit® model.
Reinforcement Shape Codes
With AutoPadds, you can create your own libraries of reinforcement shape codes. Shape codes for the following codes of practice are included by default:
- BS 4466 - 1989
- BS 8666 - 2005
- SANS 282 - 2004
Rebar Properties Palette
AutoPadds has a properties palette for rebar objects (similar to other AutoCad® object such as lines and circles) for easy editing of rebar properties such as diameter, shape code and dimensions. And like other objects, rebar objects can be filtered out of a multiple object selection by selecting type “Rebar” from the type dropdown at the top of the properties palette.
AutoPadds has a scheduling calculator is contained in a AutoCAD® docking palette, making it easy to access. The palette's purpose is to read all the rebar objects in the drawing, help you sort the information, and output it in tables on the AutoCAD® drawing.
