Greg Corke got an exclusive preview of the latest release, which tutoria, the mature RC detailing product bang up to date. This is all to look forward to in future updates, which when implemented is sure to add further value to an already impressive RC detailing system. At the heart of the new version is a brand new Scheduling Interface, which runs in an entirely separate window to AutoCAD.
For example, you can find out how much of a particular shape or type of steel is used in an individual drawing. To help cope with increased time pressures on RC detailers to deliver drawings and schedules as soon as they are finished, the new version enables users to issue in stages, whilst managing the process at the same time.
The new Scheduling Interface makes it much easier to organise, categorise or format your bar data. The system also includes automatic RC detailing Macros for beams, pile caps, bases, footings and padbases. The introduction of CADS RC 9 marks the first stage in what will be a complete overhaul of the popular RC detailing solution concluded with release The major concentration in this release is on the tutorisl of the RC detailing process with critical updates to the scheduling interface and a streamlined issuing and revision system.
Together, these enhancements should lead to less manual checking downstream, which is a critical factor in the success of any Computer Aided Design software solution. Much attention has also been paid to the customisation of the Cxds Interface and CAD managers can easily format which fields are visible, where they appear and how they are displayed. R update made to the drawing will be automatically reflected in both schedules.
CADS RC then locks out the drawing and associated schedule, until such gutorial time that a revision is required. To finish off the process, RC detailers can also export to SteelPac in order to automatically generate code for cutting lengths and bends.
NET the new Scheduling Interface replaces the previous AutoCAD-based dialogue box of V8, which looked dated and was not particularly intuitive when it came to viewing or organising the contents of the bar bending schedule.
Based on modern GUI standards, the new interface takes inspiration from programs such as Microsoft Outlook which makes it much easier to organise, categorise or format your data.
A drawing sheet can either be an AutoCAD layout or a specific area of model and as soon as a sheet is finished it can be issued. This means a major overhaul to the scheduling interface, a more comprehensive issuing and revision system and the streamlining of report generation, among other features.
CADS RC 9 preview
Usability is high on the list of improvements for this new release – which marks the first stage of a major system rewrite – but rather than focusing on enhanced methods of drafting, CADS has concentrated its development efforts on making the downstream RC detailing processes much more efficient. This makes the program ideally suited to a dual monitor workstation setup where users can easily keep track of both sets of information at the same time.
The use of drawing sheets also makes it very easy to copy and paste between viewports with different scales, and the continuity of bar marks is also managed effectively.
Version 9 also makes it much easier to create reports, which are based on standard templates, but can also be fully customised by the user.
