Till now, I've been able to analyze my Structural models in FreeCAD and I've found the results really impressive. As I'm a structural engineering student and my requirement is to save my time from creating manual reinforcement & manual rebar drawings. So, I've an idea/question for the developers on this forum that can they build a program on FreeCAD that can create automatic reinforcement in the structural members of the building after analyzing the building with loads applied. Also, if it can create automatic rebar shop drawings of different views with automated annotations and dimensioning.
