I am trying to detail pipe bollards, and need to install an aluminum cap on the top and rebar through the bottom. I do not see how I can make a rebar object. I assume I will have to make the cap out of an AutoCAD solid and tell the program what it is?

The semisphere type of cap plate required for the pipe bollards is not avaliable as an Advance Steel as a predefined object / macro. In order to obtain the required object in Advance Steel, you need to create it as an Autocad ACIS object, save it in a file which then is placed in your Symbols folder ( C:\ProgramData\Graitec\AdvanceSteel\2010\Shared\Support\Symbols ) and then add it in the model using the function : Advance Steel Special Part ( C:\ProgramData\Graitec\AdvanceSteel\2010\Shared\Support\Symbols )
But, this type of element can't be detailed in a single part / main part detail drawing. You can only add them to Overview type of drawing.

But can I add it to the BOM?

What about the rebar?

Yes, you can number the special parts and add them to BOM lists.
In order to create simple rebar objects in Advance Steel, you can create polylines to follow the shape, and then use Beam to polyline, while using a Round profile.
