PowerPack for Revit propose an End Bar Symbol command, which is useful especially for cases, when rebars overlap on the view to clarify reinforcement drawings.,

The End Bar Symbol command supports two usage scenarios:

  • called with existing rebar selection – symbols are defined automatically at both ends of selected bars,
  • called without any selection – a symbol it is defined at the end which is closer to the indicated point on the bar.

The type of bar end symbol depends on the family used (Detail items category). The default family and type are selected in the Reinforcement Configuration window.

The family supplied with the program (Graitec EndBarSymbol) contains two types of symbols:

tick (with or without bar mark annotation)

tag (with or without bar mark annotation)

This family also allows for easy configuration of the size of the components as well as easy flipping
