Rebar hooks have a matrix relationship between the hook angle and rebar size. The rebar hook type comprises a defined hook angle and initial hook length, as explained in Rebar Hook Type Properties. You can change the hook lengths for the rebar type, as explained in Rebar Type Properties. After the placement of rebar, Revit provides graphical controls to modify the rebar orientation, as explained in Modifying Rebar Hooks.
Place rebar hooks
- Select either a rebar instance or a rebar set. This will require a section view or unobscured rebar visibility settings.
- On the Properties palette, add hooks as needed under the Construction section:
- Select a hook type from the Hook at Start parameter.
- Select a hook type from the Hook at End parameter.
Define a rebar hook type
- In the Project Browser, navigate to FamiliesStructural RebarRebar Hook.
- Right-click a hook, and select Duplicate.
- Double-click the new copy.
- Define the Style, Hook Angle, and Extension Multiplier in Rebar Hook Type Properties.
- Click OK.
- Right-click the new hook type, and select Rename. Enter a name for the hook type.
You can now apply this hook type to instances within the project. For example, associate the hook with all rebar instances to ensure accurate scheduling.
Applying new hook types
- In the Project Browser, again navigate to Rebar Hook.
- Double-click a rebar type.
- Click the Hook Lengths Edit button in the Dimensions section to define the Rebar Hook Length Parameters.
- Select a hook type and adjust length parameters as needed.
- Click OK.
- Repeat steps 7-11 for all rebar instances that use the new hook.
