Sofistik

Sofistik offers software for analysis, design and detailing of building and infrastructure projects.

Software for better design

Sofistik offers software for analysis, design and detailing of building and infrastructure projects. Symetri provides three of the products from the Sofistik portfolio.

  • Reinforcement detailing
  • Reinforcement generation
  • Bridge modeller

Reinforcement detailing

Reinforcement detailingAccelerate the creation of 2D reinforcement sheets from 3D Rebar models in Revit with a set of families that can easily be modified to meet national or company standards. Includes the creation of bar lists, bending schedules and cut lists for wire meshes.

Key benefits

  • Customisable content packs to meet individual standards
  • Customisable reinforcement schedules and cut lists for fabric sheets
  • Copy reinforcement with all annotations, details, dimensions and related views

Reinforcement generation

Reinforcement generationAutomatically generate a 3D rebar model inside Autodesk Revit based on computed analysis and design results. The rebar model provides an automatically generated proposition of the reinforcement layout, fulfilling the reinforcement requirement and freeing it for modification. Design requirements from construction codes and company standards can be controlled by user-defined rules similar to the approach used in expert systems. In addition, visualisation of the existing reinforcement vs the required reinforcement provides a clear indication of whether adequate reinforcement has been provided.

Key benefits

  • Analysis results directly from Sofistik database and Revit results packages
  • Automatic generation of reinforcement bars for beams, columns, walls and slabs using results from analysis and design
  • Visualisation of required and physically inserted reinforcement to ensure that adequate reinforcement is provided

Bridge Modeller

Bridge modelerCreate parameter 3D bridge models using alignment parameters and generic families in Autodesk Revit. With parametric modelling you can perform case studies and reduce planning time and cost. The parameters stays consistent throughout the processing period. The modeller includes generic families for super- and substructure creation that can easily be modified or created from scratch to meet local and company standards. In addition, bridge equipment elements such as parapets and railings can be created. Automatic generation of section views, top views, longitudinal sections and elevation points assists users in detailing and documenting their structures.

Key benefits

  • Creates 3D bridge axes using alignment information
  • Creates bridge superstructure components using parametric profiles and axis geometry
  • Creates bridge substructure components using generic families
  • Creates bridge equipment elements such as parapets and railings
