A few months ago, we unveiled our solution for framing wood roofs. Now it’s time for the metal framing counterpart: Metal Framing Roof+! Designed for prefabricated metal roofs, this new product meets the demand for efficiently turning an architectural roof into a prefabricated metal-framed roof, allowing for quick manufacture of roofs on site.

Metal Framing Roof+ empowers the user to draw prefabricated metal-framed roofs in Revit® models. This tool does it all: roof joists, battens, valley joists, roof boards, etc. And let’s not forget that it automates the shop drawing process, including sorting, tagging, dimensioning, and scheduling all frames.

Welcome everyone to the second webinar we are hosting in our Precast Concrete series. Maybe some of you attended the first webinar in January in which we gave an overview of how our software can be applied to precast concrete projects.

This webinar is dedicated to precast wall panels. Modeling these elements is a time consuming job, and we need to find ways to minimize excess effort as much as we can. Walls have different forms and connections, different drawing requirements from manufacturers, so it‘s not easy to meet all these, complete them on time, and be in front of competitors to get the job.

Join us on April 6, 2017 for our special free 30-min webinar!

Customizing a header, sill, or top-pate support in Revit used to be the stuff of dreams and fairy tales. As more and more Revit users in the framing field began dreaming this collective dream, however, it was no longer something only to be dreamed of – but acted upon. Now the time has come to say: The dream has become reality.

Yes, that’s right. You weren’t daydreaming as you read that. Honest to goodness, you can now create custom headers, sills, and top plate supports in your metal or wood framing project! We’d like to give you a quick overview of this extremely valuable feature as well as other useful improvements that are part of the latest versions of Wood / Metal Framing Wall+.



1. The ability to make virtually any custom type of header, sill, and top plate support. This is a dream-come-true for many of our customers. It’s one of the biggest advances ever made in our wall framing solutions, so we’re very excited to share it with you!

You can create any type of header, sill, or top plate support and save it under its own name for future projects. Your custom configurations can also be shared with colleagues.

Cut Opening software was created as a tool to aid in collaborating between different parts of the project regarding openings. This collaboration is driven by .xml files that contain information about opening position, opening size, opening joining distnce, services that openings contain, etc. Now we have added new communication parameters that allow users to share their ideas straight in the model.

The new parameters for collaboration have been added to families. Users can write comments and approve or decline the openings. And of course it keeps track of who added the comments.

This webinar is intended for modellers, MEP modellers, MEP engineers, Structural engineers, architects, and fire protection engineers.

Cut Opening creates openings with fire safety components for MEP services in walls, floors, roofs, ceilings, beams, and columns throughout an architectural or structural Revit® model in real-time for high-speed and precise design and drawings, accurate bill of materials, and builders work drawings.

During the webinar we will focus on three different tasks that Revit + Cut Opening software could accomplish:

  • No-Clash model preparation:

o Configuration preparation for openings (Opening size, Joining distances, Partial interference)
o Run interference check
o Insert openings, combining configuration data and interference check report from Revit

  • Builders Work drawings

o Shared parameters and their usage
o Tags and schedules
o Visual representation of holes in structures

  • Special features for Fire protection engineers

o Distribution of Fire Dampers
o Distribution of Fire Collars
o Distribution of Fire Sleeves
o Distribution of Fire Boards
o …and other details

In the previous webinar on Precast Concrete, we did a general overview of our Precast tools, quickly running through different examples of precast elements. As promised, we will host 3 additional webinars about modeling precast structures and generating documentation for them. So now it‘s time to divide the information into smaller pieces and concentrate on particular types of elements. First up – slabs!

In this webinar, we’ll show how to prepare layouts of various slabs and add additional details and cuts automatically. After modelling, we’ll sort and schedule them and prepare automatic shop drawings with predefined dimensioning and sheet layout settings. Everything you need to know for modelling precast floors in Revit!

Topics to be covered in this 30-minute webinar:

As Smart Assemblies (SA) is increasingly used for automated dimensioning and arranging views on sheets, many user requests have come in. And we’ve been working really hard to keep up with the pace! Several of your requests have been fulfilled in the most recent SA update, so I’d like to highlight those new features that are now available.

New features are numbered in the following two images. First, are the new options in the Shop Drawing Configurations (SDC) window…

…and here are the new options found in the SA panel:

Innovative new approaches to BIM data management and exchange are the focus of “InfiniBIM: BIM to the point” – a blog for BIM specialists and AEC industry professionals recently started by Donatas Aksomitas, the CEO of AGACAD, at www.infinibim.com. We encourage you to visit and subscribe.

“It’s often said the ‘I’ in BIM is ‘big’ since information is the key to everything in this field,” Donatas says. “Fair enough. But in today’s big-data world there’s a risk of overload – too much information, much of it with no use or value, clogging our heads and IT systems and slowing our work,” he adds.

Thank you.
