    Question AutoCAD Structural Detailing v CADS-RC

    Hi,

    Just wondering how AutoCAD Structural Detailing compares to CADS-RC for reinforced concrete detailing.
    Any feedback is much appreciated

    We used to detail with software written for us only... Then we changed to AutoPADDS by prokon.com
    Our bridge guys and one of our other offices moved over to CADS RC

    In our department the guys were really not happy with CADS RC.

    Now all three our structural offices are changing over to ASD.
    The main drivers being:
    1. It works - a few tweaks to our workflow were required though
    2. For all practical purposes it came for free with our Revit Structure Suite licences

    Thanks swmarais,

    We are thinking ASD for the same reason - it comes as part of a package - so good to hear
    from people that have used it and find it works.

    There are a few tricks with ASD and a few things we would like changed.
    Overall there are not too many complaints from the detailers and we have not had serious issues on sites yet

    Hi
    How do you manage to stay within the SANS 282 code's requirement as it does not allow for SC 83 (stools)?
