As you may already know, our framing software for Revit not only creates multilayered frames for walls, floors, and roofs but also assists in designing high-quality ventilated facades, architectural curtain walls with highly detailed elements, and you guessed it – frames with structural insulated panels (SIPs) or cross-laminated timber (CLT). The software’s powerful and flexible features automate design tasks for all kinds of structures – it‘s just a matter of figuring out a workflow and using the required families! In this webinar, you’ll see how to create frames with SIPs and CLT for walls, floors, and roofs by using AGACAD’s Wood Framing software and sample families.

Join our upcoming webinar about framing walls, floors, and roofs in Revit with SIPs and CLT!

Great news for those working in the French version of Revit. Thanks to Eurostudio, our partner in France, AGACAD’s TOOLS4BIM Dock (2018, 2017) is now available in French! And not only the Dock, but 3 tools are also en français:

Excel2R imports tables from MS Excel into Revit and retains style and format settings, significantly speeding up project documentation by synchronizing with the original spreadsheet, keeping your tables in Revit and in Excel tightly linked.

Smart Browser Free lets you easily find families on your computer, check their types and parameters, view them in 2D or 3D, and then drag-and-drop to add elements to your project.

Smart Browser Simple/Power lets you easily find Revit families on your computer or company server, check their types and parameters, view them in 2D or 3D, and then drag-and-drop to add elements to your project.

To use any of the above tools in French, just choose a Revit version (below) and download the TOOLS4BIM Dock in French:

AGACAD will be in Paris for BIM World on March 28-29. We’re very glad to be sharing a stand with our French partner Eurostudio. Come see us at booth 202!

At this event, our team will be showing our lineup of Revit tools as well as demonstrating BIMAXON, a new-generation BIM platform that gives real-time access to data from whatever sources are being used (Archicad, IFC, Navisworks, Revit, Tekla, etc.). One of the primary purposes of BIMAXON is to reduce the information delivered to BIM actors to only what's necessary – no more, no less. And of course delivering it at the right time in the building life-cycle process. That means eliminating unnecessary information that clogs up our heads and IT systems. Which translates into increased efficiency and accuracy all around.

Our Precast Concrete solution for Revit was just recently updated with new features and performance improvements, including new ways to split walls, add details, and create shop drawings/tickets. But by far the most significant update is that the Metal Framing Floor+ feature has been added to Precast Concrete! We did this especially for clients wanting to create slabs by using Structural Framing families and even apply this to warped double tee slabs for precast parking garages.

Q: We use a Trimble Total Station robot to lay out our hanger points in the field. Do your hangers have the point information that could be exported to our Trimble Total Station?

A: We have a tool called Sort Mark for calculating element coordinates in Revit according to Shared or Project coordinates.

I've recorded the video below where you can see a structure for which Trimble Total Station needs unique ID, X, Y, and Z coordinates.

So just take a look at this video. I use Sort Mark to do everything: to give elements unique marks and to calculate elevation and coordinates. I hope this helps!
