Powerful 3D parametric reinforced concrete models

ProConcrete is a comprehensive modeling and detailing software that allows you to model objects of any shape, with any combination of reinforcing. With ProConcrete, you can easily create concrete structures for a variety of industries such as building, plant, civil, and bridges. It allows you to reduce documentation production time and eliminate errors and design flaws. Quickly create accurate 3D models, placement drawings, fabrication details, bar bending schedules, concrete quantity, and material reports with automatic updates to reflect model changes.

ProConcrete

Easy-to-use reinforced concrete modeling commands

Using intuitive modeling commands, you can easily model industry standard structural members, such as beams, columns, slabs, walls, and foundations, as well as complex reinforced concrete shapes including curves, sloping, or non-orthogonal shapes. Added steel reinforcement is attached to concrete objects and updates automatically as the concrete shape changes.

ProConcrete Design to international design standards

Communicate design with high-quality documentation

ProConcrete drawings, bills of materials, and bar bending schedules are produced directly from the 3D model. Plans, sections, and details based on user-defined drawing styles can be created from any view direction and are dynamically updated following changes to the model. Bar bending schedules and material takeoffs are easy to extract from the 3D model and are highly customizable to conform with any country or company standard. This substantially reduces the time to produce documentation and virtually eliminates errors and design flaws.

ProConcrete - Model reinforced concrete

Re-use structural data with interoperability

ProConcrete allows for seamless collaboration and exchange of information with other disciplines including architectural, plant and process, HVAC, and services to ensure the best quality and faster delivery. Reinforcing concrete models from other solutions like OpenBuildings Designer, OpenBridge Modeler, and MicroStation is made easy, by enabling reinforcement modeling in models attached as references. Collaboration with engineers who use third-party solutions like Autodesk Revit or Tekla Structures is enabled through industry standard formats, including IFC (Industry Foundation Class). Reinforcement models can then be transferred digitally to rebar manufacturers for fabrication and rebar placers for construction, which allows you to manage their day-to-day work with digital data and 3D models, vastly improving efficiency.
