Designed to exceed the needs of rebar detailers, fabricators, placers, and engineers, aSa CAD/Detailing combines the engineering design tools of Bentley Systems’ top-rated CAD product, MicroStation, with aSa-developed applications for project management and detailing. Additionally, the system seamlessly integrates with all other modules in aSa’s suite of rebar software products.
Using aSa and MicroStation tools, you’ll detail as you draw in CAD, ensuring accurate bar placement and eliminating tedious calculations. The program automates every aspect of the detailing process, from initial project setup, to creating the drawing, producing accurate bar details, and advanced reporting. Material takeoff is also completely automated, so you’ll never forget or duplicate material to be fabricated.
- Reduce shortages & errors
Built-in calculations and error-checking help prevent mistakes. The system tracks and color-codes each item, so you always know what is taken-off and what remains.
- Turn projects around quicker
aSa software automates every step of the detailing process, from initial project setup to easy material takeoff directly from the drawing.
- Eliminate complicated CAD file imports
MicroStation V8 allows you to open and modify native AutoCAD® files.
- Accommodate fabricating and placing needs
Tag messages, special material groupings, and placer-specific reports allow the detailer to help shop and field crews work more efficiently.
- Detail rebar and everything else
Include rebar, plain round, mesh, and all accessories on your drawing.
- Automate drawing and detailing of structures such as beams and columns
Built-in tools calculate required steel and place these and other common structure types, including linear and circular areas, openings, and footings. You enter the basics such as clearances and laps, and the program handles all the drawing and detailing.
