Modeling rebar for the purpose of meeting an BIM LOD (level of detail) requirement is not recommended, unless that rebar model is going to be pushed downstream into fabrication/construction and used to save schedule or money. Why/When to Model Rebar Shop drawing productionWhy – construction schedule and material tonnage ($$) savingsConstructability, congestion, and coordination studiesWhy – better constructability, reduced congestion issues, enhanced coordination
Why/When NOT to Model Rebar Because you canWhy not – you’ll blow your budgetTo draw details for construction documentsWhy not – you’ll end up chasing around bar in other unrelated views, modifications are more of a pain, and you can draw details faster using detail components
