Bar Bending Schedule & Quantity Estimation Software

Preparation of Reinforcement **Bar Bending
Schedules** for RCC work at construction sites is the most tedious and time-consuming task. The shape of each and every bar
is to be derived exactly for cutting from working drawings. With increasing cost of steel, it has become necessary to minimize the
wastage.

**BarBeQue**
software takes care of all these aspects, for preparation of Bar
Bending Schedules and Quantity Estimation Software.
**BarBeQue** software is not Excel or any spreadsheet
based, neither it runs under any CAD package. It is complete standalone
software, which generates **to-the-scale** graphical
**sketch** of each bar. Program eliminates time-consuming
work of calculating the cut length of bars. **BBS sheets **generated
can be printed through this package directly. Outputs of this software
can also be read in any CAD package.

**Bar-Be-Que**
has a standalone option for Manual data entry of each bar. The dimensions
of each bar are entered in a tabular form. Program generates the
**Bar Bending Schedule (BBS) Drawing** with **to-the-scale**
graphical **sketch** of each bar. Bar Shape Code can
be as per latest **IS 2502** or **BS 8666**
code. Program eliminates time-consuming work of calculating the
length of bars, as per code requirements. Deductions in the bar
lengths for bending, is done with different ways, as per **IS
or BS codes** or as per site practices. Diameters wise break
up of Reinforcement Quantities is printed as the summary.

Almost all possible of bar shapes are available in the library, with their formulae for calculating the bar lengths. Dimensions of the bars are entered in user-friendly dialog boxes.

**Bar-Be-Que**
is compatible with **Formulator**, a Revolutionary
General purpose Object based Quantity Estimator software by Ensoft.
**Formulator** software comes with a library of various
RCC objects like Rectangular Beam, Tapered Beam, Curved Beam, L-shaped
column, U-shaped column etc. **Formulae** for working
out the dimensions of all the bars like, main bars, face bars, stirrups
and links etc. are pre-defined for these objects. User can add new
objects in the library. Bar dimensions required for **Bar-Be-Que**
are generated by Formulator with simple data entry of Object dimensions.Main
feature of Bar-Be-Que is that it is not Excel or any spread sheet
based. It is complete stand alone software which generates the to-the-scale
sketches of each and every bar. Deduction in Bar Length can be done
with different ways, as per IS or BS code or standard site practices.

BarBeQue software comes with a module for generating Optimized Bar Cutting Arrangements for purchased lengths of bars, to minimize the wastage of Steel. Once the cut the lengths of each bar are calculated, program sorts these lengths in the decreasing order for each Diameter. It applies optimization routines to place these cut lengths in the purchased Bar Lengths (say 12 Mt), such that the wastage is minimum.

BarBeQue Software is simple to operate and there is no need of thorough knowledge of any CAD package.
