Revit. Walls reinforcement: rules for bending reinforcement, stirrups in the frame of the opening and straight joints from the foundation slab
Today's update of the Walls reinforcement plugin has several major innovations at once, which will be briefly discussed in this article.
The most important update: the algorithms for checking and correcting the standard rebar bend diameters have been redesigned.

There are also several minor changes and fixes that you can check out on the change story page. By the way, recently on the site, the story of changes for the plugin began to be displayed directly on the plugin page!
There is still a lot of work ahead on your requests. We remember everything, we wrote everything down and we will definitely implement everything!
Enjoy your work with ModPlus!
