I saw a couple of videos out of curiosity; The answer seems to be NO to everything, but i hope im wrong

 

If you need to work together with engineers using a complete BIM software with advanced structural and MEP features, Revit is the best platform for that.

The elements made with eptar are basically objects. If you change a structural element in Archicad you need to reshape the reinforcement by changing the parameters of the reinforcements objects yourself, so it is not automatic.

The reinforcement scenarios you can model is not bad, it can be pretty versatile, but the documentation process (graphic positioning on layouts, how you can label elements, show the elements themselves, quantity takeoffs, etc.) is still bad and have minimal control over it.

So I would not recommend it for now.

 

I do hope it gets better soon, and would really love to have a Archicad native tool for reinfocement.

Maybe this will be my next accessory object(s).
