In this Revit 2023 release, again, the structural tools continue to build on the core functionality of reinforced concrete modelling and steel fabrication modelling, but also, we have new analytical automation. Let's start by looking at some of the key features and tools relating to concrete and steel modelling.

Visualisation of Rebar in 3D View

The method for making rebar visible in a 3D view has been simplified. With the rebar selected, in the view visibility states dialogue box, you only have the view unobscured option to tick now. The rebar will automatically view as a solid when your view is in the Fine Level of Detail.


Propagate Rebar

One of the best new features in this release is the Propagate Rebar; with rebar selected in a host object, the propagate rebar tool will appear. You can then select individual or multiple ‘like’ hosts to copy the rebar.

Displaced Rebar

A feature that has been available for some time now works with rebar; select the rebar in a host object and use the standard displace elements tool to reposition the rebar in your view as desired. You can add path lines and reset the displaced bars.

Multi Leader Tags for Rebar

You can use the standard tag by category tool to tag a rebar set, however with Revit 2023, you can now add additional bars from that set to the tag. You can also control the leader lines with multi or single leaders.


Analytical Automation

In Revit 2023, we now have Analytical Driven Modelling; this differs from the derived analytical model as contextual, analytical elements are not created automatically when the physical model is created. We now have new feature capabilities such as Analytical Member, Analytical Panel, Analytical Node, Analytical Openings.

We also have a new Automation feature to generate a structural analytical model based on selected physical elements.

Steel Connections Automation

With a new Connection Automation feature, you can automatically apply popular typical steel connections and create your own libraries by expanding/customising the predefined libraries. The customisable automation rules for the steel connections are run by the Dynamo player.
