Symetri have delivered the Naviate Rebar Extension for Autodesk Revit since the Revit 2019 version into the global AEC market. During these years we have seen a need for a solution with less limitation and more capabilities. The framework we are using doesn’t support all the new workflows needed by our customers in today’s market.

Naviate Rebar Extension, also known as Naviate REX, will be discontinued and replaced with a brand-new product; Naviate Rebar. The new Naviate Rebar is built on the Naviate framework, working with the Revit API.

We are aiming to release the first version for Revit 2023 in September this year. Last version for Naviate REX will be on Revit 2022. The old REX will still be available.

Development plan

First release will support the most used features in former Naviate REX.

  • Revit 2023 compatible
  • Automatic bar placement
  • Dynamic previews
  • Support for Beam, Columns and Walls
  • Propagated Rebar support

There are other features on the roadmap, and we will continue development based on customer feedback, priority and criticality.
