Rebar add-on for BricsCAD ® and AutoCAD ®

The collaboration between Addosoft and Bricsys aims to bridge the gap between advanced CAD systems and locally developed solutions, within the South African market. We believe Bricsys provides the ideal combination of a light-weight, yet smart CAD platform, which is extendable in terms of add-on applications.

With Bricsys, Addosoft sets out to bring back the local South African ingenuity of specialised design and drafting modules on a very advanced and cost-effective CAD system, without re-inventing the wheel.

AddoBAR - Rebar Detailing

AddoBAR is the next generation platform for rebar detailing software. Our software fuels efficiency within your CAD design process and facilitates both quality and accurate production of reinforcement detailing. AddoBAR works seamlessly with the world's leading CAD software, BricsCAD and Autodesk AutoCAD®. With AddoBAR, detailing is made simple. Inserting, scheduling and changing of bar properties have never been easier.

AddoBAR also supports 3D bar display mode, so no need to struggle with alternate means of rendering, constraint solving and clash detection, whilst utilising the powerful object based tools CAD has to offer. AddoBAR is not only a powerful object based, full 3D, detailing solution, it is also affordable, empowering you to create impressive rebar layouts that will land you that important client without breaking the bank.
