Does finding content in your Revit® library eat up too much time? How about modifying Revit families?

If so, then sign up for our free webinar about efficient BIM content management using our Smart Browser software for Revit. It makes browsing, sorting, managing, and controlling Revit families a breeze and drastically reduces the time required to modify them.

The 30-minute presentation + Q&A will be hosted twice on January 30th, so please join the time that's more convenient for you.

Session Most convenient for: Thursday, January 30, 2020
1 Europe, Africa, Asia, Oceania 10:00 - 10:30 CET REGISTER HERE
2 N. & S. America, Europe, Africa 10:00 - 10:30 CST REGISTER HERE

Especially for BIM managers, BIM content creators, and Revit users. Whether you're a seasoned user of Smart Browser or you're curious to see what this BIM content management software is capable of, we hope you'll join in!

Among the updates we'll show are:

  • enhanced UI. (The old UI looked like this → )
  • load multiple Families or Family Types simultaneously
  • change view to thumbnail view (large/medium) or list view
  • dock the Smart Browser window in Revit – just like you can with Revit’s Properties or Project Browser windows
  • auto-sort and renumber Revit elements using the integrated Sort Mark add-on (more on that after the jump)

All of our Tools4Revit Add-ons (v. 2020) can now be found in the Autodesk App Store for Revit. You can download T4R Add-ons from either the App Store or our TOOLS4BIM Dock.

By way of reminder, free tools have no limitations. Trial versions of our paid Revit plug-ins have no limitations for two weeks and include support during the trial period. That means our BIM application engineers are at your disposal to assist and give a live demonstration. To get help, all you need to do is...

Prepared by Bryan Bradley of Textus Aptus

In 2018 Autodesk named AGACAD, a developer of BIM software for Revit professionals, one of its first AEC Industry Partners, with special reference to precast concrete. In fact, precast is an area where BIM adoption has been slow and where for long Autodesk Revit was not an obvious choice of platform. AGACAD has done much to change that. We sat down for a chat with Donatas Aksomitas, the CEO of AGACAD, and Valensas Balsevičius, a structural engineer and BIM Application Engineer at the company.

What are the current dynamics in the world of precast concrete?

Donatas: Precast is getting bigger and bigger, like prefabrication in general. Prefab is the future of construction – at least until people start just printing whole buildings. There’s less waste, shorter work time on site meaning lower costs for things like cranes, plus less noise, easier logistics… Everyone’s moving toward that: making construction elements in a factory and bringing them to site for assembly. The next step after panels is full module production – delivering not one wall but four, already connected and finished.

Dear Clients, Colleagues, Friends and Followers,

Going beyond what’s required to provide for the needs of others is a part of the holiday spirit. Feeling responsible for more than just your own current needs is also vital to getting all the benefits of BIM.

In short, caring for others is also relevant here, just as it is in families, friendships and communities.

“Collaboration” is the term that’s usually used. Doing your best to provide for the information needs of later BIM process participants. Builders, designers/consultants, contractors, property managers. When each maximally contributes their own quality information, we’re on the path to a realistic digital twin.

Only a precisely detailed digital twin like that creates value in use. And only when a BIM model is in use, adding value to a building’s life, can you say BIM is fully at work. That’s why our holiday wish for you and all the BIM industry is to care about others and do your best at every stage to provide for their needs.

A lot depends on you.

For our part, we will continue working to help you do that. Ever more easily, more efficiently and better.

Merry Christmas and a Happy 2020 to all!

Sincerely,
The AGACAD team

In this webinar, we'll showcase one of our BIM Solutions that benefits MEP Engineers, Structural engineers, Architects and BIM coordinators alike: Cut Opening. Not only can this tool insert openings for MEP elements in linked files or in the same model, but it can also create openings for doors and windows in a structural model according to their arrangement in an architectural model. And there’s also functionality for inserting fire dampers in walls whose fire rating is specified.

Let's cut to the chase. When it comes to streamlining BIM workflows, Cut Opening packs a punch. And during this webinar we'll show you what it can do. We hope you'll join in.

The 30-minute webinar + Q&A will be hosted twice on December 19th, so please join the time most convenient for you.

Thanks to everyone who participated in our webinar about the 12 Revit add-ons in our Tools4Revit Suite. It was one of the biggest turnouts we've ever had! All seats were taken, so some of you who registered were unable to view the live webinar.

If you'd like to review the webinar, head over to our YouTube channel to watch it. While there, please subscribe to our channel! Meanwhile, here's a trimmed down version showing a clip of each add-on.
